    I just had a qso with KC4AAA The AMUNDSEN-SCOTT SOUTH POLE STATION, on 14.243 and I did it with a 100 watts and a Carolina Windom. No amp used here and oh what a feeling. This made my Christmas really feel like Christmas.

    For a long time, I couldn't get through the pileups and I finally did it.

    Merry Christmas to all at the AMUNDSEN-SCOTT SOUTH POLE STATION.

    Congratulations. Working a new one is always exciting and especially nice when you can do it low power and w/o a big yagi at 100 ft. Merry Christmas

    No permanent North Pole stations. Remember, the North Pole is just ice whereas the South Pole is located on land.

    Also, years ago the South Pole station was KC4USA. KC4USB was at the Marie Byrd Land location and I worked KC4USB as a Novice Class operator on 15 meter CW in 1959.

    Congrats Greg

    Just a couple of weeks ago I worked them for the first time, running 100watts into an A3S at 40ft. The thing is that the rotor is down for repairs and so I worked them off the back of the beam.

    Great signal into Texas.

    I missed the 3Y0X station though, back then I only had a 4BTV and couldn't even hear them.

    5T:

    There is a pretty good chance that you actually worked them "long path" instead of off the back.

    Yes that does make more sense.. It was a nice feeling though to work them. I couldn't even hear them on the G5RV.

    I'm looking forward to getting a QSL card for my collection.

    Glen when did the SP Call Sign Change?
