The 2002 DXpedition to South Sandwich and South Georgia Islands - VP8THU/VP8GEO

The "unofficial" video of the first Penguins Microlite Dxpedition to S. Sandwich Islands and S. Georgia. Filmed, written and produced by Bob Allphin, K4UEE, edited by Ed Boutwell, W4ZSB

The concept of Microlite is "back to basics" i.e.: small radios, low power, small generators, vertical antennas, little advance notice, no pilots, website or on-line logs.

This lightly-equipped, twelve-man, international team operated first from Thule Island, S. Sandwich Islands, the location of a battle between the British and Argentine forces during the Falklands war. The Island is populated only with millions of Chinstrap penguins and the remains of the Argentine base.

After making 26,698 contacts during their three-day, commando-like strike on Thule, they sailed on to S. Georgia Island. This is where Sir Ernest Shackleton and two of his crew sailed seeking rescue for the crew of the Endeavor stranded on Elephant Island. Shackleton`s final resting place overlooks the old whaling station on Grytviken.

The team added another 40,000 radio contacts to their totals and knocked both S. Sandwich and S. Georgia out of the DXCC`s top ten "most wanted" list.
