McMurdo is so-named because it's on the McMurdo Sound. (Thank you, Wikipedia.)

But you are right, Amundsen-Scott is at 90 S.

I was always told it was McMurdo because its on the South Pole.  Maybe its Admunson Scott that counts for all.

According to Wikipedia, McMurdo is not at the geographic south pole. It's at 77°50′47″S 166°40′06″E, so it's really in grid RB23 (if I did that correctly).

Unfortunately the only thing that counts on Antarctica is McMurdo Station, because it is on the pole thus giving you all the grids that surround it.

Several tornados struck Dayton area last night and also hit Wright-Patterson AFB. Here’s a pic of the old Hara.

Just a heads up.  Main PODXS web page still shows St. Pats Day contest upcoming.  Should be Three Day Weekend?  Not important just a little dated.

TDW – Three Day Weekend is the "Greatest" 070 Contest of the year.

Starts at 0000 UTC May 31 (8:00 p.m. EDT Thursday, May 30)

Ends at 2359 UTC June 2 (7:59 p.m. EDT Sunday, June 2)

Top Dawg and Bonus Station Steve, VA3TPS, returns looking for his 5th winning TDW contest. Let’s give him a challenge this year!! 

This year as last, this contest is open to all licensed radio amateurs. 
Welcome Newcomers and invite them to join us.

There are some rules changes this year so be sure to review the rules - TDW Rules. To plan your strategy you might want to review last year’s results which are available 2018 TDW Results

Bonus Stations count as 100 points. There will be 7 Bonus Stations spread across the continent, so everybody should have plenty to pick from.

Exchange: Call sign, First Name, RST, and S/P/C

Here is the complete list of 2019 Bonus Stations.

 

VA3TPS – Steve, Fenelon Falls, ON - Top Dawg

 

KC3EF - Dick, Gainesville, FL

 

KK6KMU - Bob, Oceanside, CA

 

KX4WB - William, Drummonds, TN

 

N9JCA – Chris, Evansville, IN

 

W7PSK - Scotty, Everett, WA

 

VE3LTN - Mike, Plantagenet, ON

 

Last year we had 80 logs submitted, with 44 states worked over 7 bands.  Let's try to beat that this year.
Hopefully propagation will be favorable, and over the three day event and 7 bands, something is bound to pop!

Good luck to all and hope to see you on the waterfall.
