UA_ant - Alexei, RX6A will be active as  RI01ANT from  Progress Station  and
         Vostok Station, Antarctica approximately between 25 December and 30
         May 2021.  He will operate mainly  CW  and  FT8  on 40 metres  "and
         higher". QSL via RX6A.

DL_ant - Felix, DL5XL will be a member of the Antarctic summer season's team
         at Neumayer III station. The RV Polarstern will be leaving  Bremer-
         haven, Germany on  20 December,  and during  the long voyage  Felix
         will  operate  mainly CW and  digital modes  as DP0POL/mm  (QSL via
         DL5EBE). From mid-January to mid-March 2021,  he expects to be  QRV
         as DP1POL (QSL via DL1ZBO) from Neumayer III.  The club call DP0GVN
         (QSL via DL5EBE) may also be used by other operators: in particular
         Theresa, DC1TH, who will be part of the 2021-22  overwintering crew
         and will operate DP0GVN via the QO100 satellite. [TNX DX World]
