I am due to rejoin the vessel in early May 2017 in Montevideo,  Uruguay.  From there the ship will head north,  with a short science cruise in the vicinity of Ascension Island.  On completion of this work the James Clark Ross will then steam north for the UK,  currently due to arrive in Southampton on 24th June.  Here the Antarctic cargo and waste will be discharged and the ship will mobilise for a science cruise to the Arctic.  It is my understanding that the ship may get as far north as 83 so for those looking for new grid squares this may be your chance to get a few new ones as I would hope to be active on the amateur bands for the time I am on board.

Working so far north may also mean the chance to see polar bears and get some spectacular pictures.

I will  update this page as and when I get further information on my next work period and it will be regularly updated once I am back on board.

Updates from my last work period,  November 2016 through to January 2017,  can be  be found HERE
