A few people give enormous amounts of their time and expertise Among them are:
Alan Carroll who was base leader in 1957. Ever since the 1996 restoration of Bransfield House he has worked tirelessly restoring the ionosonde, countless radios, and other scientific equipment. He went South again in 2006 to advise on layout and artefacts.
Sally Owen worked at Port Lockroy in 2007. She lives in Stanley and acts on our behalf in many guises in the Falkland Islands.
Jonathan Selby, whose company, Xaxero is listed on our sponsors page, has provided the know-how and advice, as well as hands on installation, for all our vital communications equipment and software.
UKAHT relies on some specialists to deliver on aspects of our work. Among them are:
Christian Brown has worked in PR for the last 25 years and is key to expanding our public engagement programme. He is the only member of the team not to have worked in Antarctica.
Eleanor Land worked at Port Lockroy in the 2009/10 season. She is now edits our newsletter, The Antarctic Times, and acts as our press officer.
Amanda Lynnes worked at Port Lockroy in the 2004/5 season. She is now runs our Oral History Project.
Tudor Morgan has been working in Antarctica for the last 18 years. Erstwhile operations manager he now oversees our merchandising arm as well as managing key outreach projects.
The UKAHT works closely with other organisations involved in Antarctic Heritage in Britain and around the world. See our Links page for more information globally and our Antarctica 100 page for details of those with polar heritage interest in the UK.
