Inside The Zone

Located just below 60 degrees south, the South Orkney Islands are one of only four DXCC entities within the UN Antarctic Treaty Zone. Both Britain and Argentina have scientific bases on the islands, but neither nation holds a recognized sovereign claim.

But even without national bureaucracy, staging a major DXpedition to a stateless, international piece of land is still challenging and expensive. Icebergs, rugged cliffs, and strict environmental regulations are just a few of the reasons why these islands are so difficult to activate.

Against the backdrop of stunning Antarctic scenery find out what took for the MicroLite Penguins to bring another one of the DX world's most unique, and most wanted, on the air.
