This is the base station set up near our first camp. So that we could be sure the antenna wouldn't move, we drilled a hole in the biggest boulder we could find that had a reasonably flat surface and a good view of the sky and then bolted the antenna to the rock. The solar panels had no trouble keeping a 40 amp-hour battery charged with 24 hours of daylight. Right behind Jeff's head is the lake our camp was on. In the background is the lower Taylor Glacier and the Taylor Valley beyond. The two dots close to each other on the glacier are a snowmobile and our fuel cache. The single dot above the pair of dots is a large boulder.
