As a radio man (UK amateur since 1950, with radio since 1942) I was interested to read of Martin Pinder and King Hussein. Whilst working in the Middle East I worked with Ray Woolley who installed his amateur station. I often heard him in contact with the Omani Sultan Qaboos.[27 August 2006]
I am wondering if I may be the only amateur to have operated from Halley with his own equipment and aerial system. Also just by chance the furthest South as I used the new "1968" Ionospheric hut loft. Propagation to Halley very different to the other bases, I used to work them all from the UK, but not Halley. I would be interested to exchange my experience with other Halley operators, from those days before Satellite/e-mails.
