About the Saturday 26th September LRA 36 transmission, I received a Whatsapp voice message from the station operator Damian Tranamil:
The rhombic antenna of the station is damaged, Damian managed to repair it provisionally the past Wednesday, when he returned to Base Esperanza from Chilean Base O’Higgins, where he is doing rescue exercises with Chilean staff of Chilean Base. In this way the regular program “Corazón Antártico” could be issued.
Saturday, Damian will try to put on air all the canned “Corazón Antártico” programs that he could not broadcast the previous Wednesdays due to the broken antenna and his stay on Base O’Higgins, these programs are in Spanish. He will also broadcast a half-hour program in German that Adrian Korol, RAE director sent to him.
No program in English is planned.
Transmission will be if the weather conditions allow it.
After Saturday, Damian will return to the Chilean base to continue the exercises and in October he will try to repair definitely the damage antenna.
