The correct CQ zone for some Antarctic bases is not always apparent from QSL cards, and other sources. In fact, a number of QSL cards for Antarctic stations state the CQ zone incorrectly. eg R1AND. The correct CQ zone can be determined from the longitude coordinate of the base, from the following table. Refer also to CQ Antarctica zone map below.
|Zone||Continent||Eastern boundary, below 60° South|
Western boundary, below 60° South
|Notes by IV3TMM|
70° W is the first meridian which include all islands of the Antarctic peninsular
26° W because VP8 South Sandwich islands have to be in WAZ 13
129° E is along the boundary between the Australian states of Western Australia and South Australia
