now is the time to activate AO40 from Antarctica

Right now it's summer in Antarctica, and the AO40 apogee is about as far south as it will get for the next 3 years.

Does anybody know of a ham who is traveling to the Antarctica soon, who might be willing to bring an AO40 ground station?  Bases on the Antarctic peninsula have AO40 windows to the Americas and Europe.  McMurdo has low elevation windows to the Americas and Asia.  McMurdo won't have any AO40 windows next summer.
