André's son Niall, VP8NJS recently spent four months in Antarctica, as the Radio Operator for Adventure Network International's base camp at Patriot Hills
Despite poor HF conditions, especially to Europe, and with very poor antennae, Niall still managed to make some time to operate on the Ham Bands.
The double-sided card and stamp will no doubt interest some collectors.
