Halley VI Research Station - Module Assembly

The latest version of the British Antarctic Surveys' Base.

Image taken during module(s) assembly. Note the assembly area just north; and the numerous snow ramps 1.4 km north that would be used to move materials/modules onto the elevated platforms.

Straight Line antenna array 1km southwest. The completed station has since been moved further west. Note: Directions are relative to map orientation. McMurdo Station was used as "city" to satify the field requirement only.
