Suitability and effectiveness of the radio and/or Iridium equipment (including comment on battery power, condition of aerials and utilisation of solar panels)

I used VHF and HF radio as well as a Satellite Phone. The equipment was provided in excellent conditions, tested, and with good and useful explanations and advice on new changes, maintenance, and usage.

Reception/transmission conditions (especially where repeater stations were in use). Particularly note any periods during your field trip, or regions you visited, where radio reception was especially bad or unexpectedly good.

Radio and satellite transmission was clear

Suitability of radio schedule timing

Not applicable

Scott Base's general efficiency during radio schedule in providing details of forthcoming field movements, weather forecasts, re-supply, or news service

Radio communication was efficient and helpful.
