RI1AND Novolazarevskaya Base Antartica

I've been hearing Mikhail RI1AND the past few days on various bands.  Tonight I heard him on 40M working simplex and decided to give him a call

I'm the blue dot at the top of the globe.  Although its only 8100 miles it still looks pretty impressive.  

This is a shot of the base camp

And the world map

He was a good S4 to 5 with polar fading and answered me in one call so I bet his noise level is nil.  Nice QSO and another notch on the new post hurricane Matthew vertical.  Tnx Mikhail
