From Peter G3LET ……  One of these was a unique opportunity which presented itself to revisit the South Orkneys after 50+ years; very few ships visit the group these days as the breakup of the glaciers due to global warming is greatly increasing the amount of pack ice which envelopes the group during the antarctic summer. Except in really good years, only the UK and LU support ships seem prepared to take the time (and risk!) to weave their way through this. Anyway, I spent some time with Mike VP8NO on the way down, who is hoping to make a determined effort in BERU this year, although he has little space for very much on 80m.
