Amateur Radio

Page 2

My first 'radio shack' at South Georgia, commercial callsign ZBH. That's me on the right (callsign VP8VN) and on the left Phil (VP8SU). Yes, long hair, but it was still the 1970's (just), it was fashionable, and the nearest barber was over 800 miles (1300Km) away. I'd like to think it was a good enough excuse.
On the right is an external view of the shack. The spade to the right of the door was needed on a number of occasions when there had been a heavy overnight snow and we had to dig our way in to work. The building was originally used as accommodation for one of the Government officials living at King Edward Point to monitor the whaling industry catches.
