I'm QSL manager for VP8GAV who was active from several bases in Antarctica back in the early 1990s, and this week I'd an email enquiry from a UA8... asking about the possibility of sending him a card confirming a contact back in 1991!!!! I mailed it today free of charge.
I've worked quite a lot of Antarctic bases and used to have regular skeds with three of them, but my most treasured QSL is one from VP8CMR in 1993. It was the last year that dog teams were allowed in Antarctica and Nigel was out in the field /DSM - Dog Sled Mobile, running 10 Watts into a dipole on ski poles!

I worked the Falklands VP8,

 DP1POL Neumayer Station III, 20M CW

DT8A South Shetland Is King George is, the King Sejong, Korean base 30 M CW

And a few others.

By the way, if you need more informations about Antartic and Artic as well, check this web site:

I love them too! This is the lighthouse that I see from my window (Tino Island, IOTA EU-083).  :)

Hello again,

Just checked my log and I worked this island last summer:

CALL: IP1T, August 17 2013 on 20M CW 20:41Z

I'm  waiting for the QSL card. It's great!! The operator has very good ears, he heard my call QRP 

Arrivederci,

Michel

The Diamond DX Club used to have a W.A.B.A. - Worked Antarctic Bases Award. I don't know if it is still running as the website has a lot of broken links, but it was a very nice plaque printed on polished aluminium.

Hello Dave,

Since yesterday, I'm the new lighthouse keeper, it means I check for the crew, all pertinent, good, interesting, and useful links.

See below   ;D

 
Well, you can look at the following link which is OK and very informative:

http://www.french-polar-team.fr/index.php    (in English)

It is full of informations, and you can browse all the QSL cards of previous operations.

Plus the ANTARTIC & ARTIC CHALLENGE still running, and see who qualified.

You will sure love this one.

Good reading Dave, and friends,
