new in WSPR 28 VP8DOI Southpole

Today poor 28 MHz
Propagation to VK vanished complete after weeks of ZL VK decodes.

But  to the south it is still open.
And to the north west to Greenland XP3A GP and west-USA CM DM EN squares

New  VP8DOI    first time at 28  new square HB64vj Antarctica 

after DP0POL and
 VK0TH Macquari Island  
the 3rd Antarctic WSPR activity  good to see a HAM that values this rare radio location with a wspr propagation reporter beacon
Would have been nice that the hams at the Falklands would go WSPR too but they seem to be unable to run WSPR ??

VP8DOI 2014

Halley Research Station
75°61'S, 26°24'W

I’ve finally gotten around to constructing an antenna (160m dipole), which I am breaking in by running wspr. By using this mode I can leave it running 24/7 to get an idea of how propagation changes throughout the day.
Until I investigate interference with various experiments here at Halley, I am running receive only with ‘coordinated’ band hopping – this means I am listening to a frequency for two minutes at a time, switching between 10 bands:
hh:mm to hh:mm - band
**:00 to **:02 - 160m
**:02 to **:04 - 80m
**:04 to **:06 - 60m
**:06 to **:08 - 40m
**:08 to **:10 - 30m
**:10 to **:12 - 20m
**:12 to **:14 - 17m
**:14 to **:16 - 15m
**:16 to **:18 - 12m
**:18 to **:20 - 10m
**:20 to **:22 - 160m
