|The DARC reports Charly Eichhorn, DK3ZL, was recently officially appointed by the board of AMSAT-DL as the new coordinator for worldwide school contacts with DP0GVN on the German Antarctic Neumayer Station III|
A translation of the DARC post reads:
The appointment is made in close consultation with the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) and the responsible radio amateurs from DP0GVN.
The local association chairman of the local association Schwalm-Knüll (F34) of the DARC e.V. is very active in the field of satellite radio and is himself an active member of the AMSAT-DL.
DK3ZL replaces Heiner Jürs, DD0KP, as coordinator. AMSAT-DL and DARC e.V. would like to thank Heiner, DD0KO, for looking after the school project AMSAT-DL and DARC e.V. and his work on all aspects of radio contacts in the Antarctic. For arranging school contacts, Charly, DK3ZL, can be reached at the e-mail address dp0gvn (at) amsat-dl.org
At the request of the AWI, the AMSAT-DL expressly points out that direct contact requests to the Alfred Wegener Institute or even to DP0GVN must be avoided! This would be pointless and counterproductive
