In the morning of May 30, 2021 I was able to receive the WSPR beacon with the call sign ‘DP0POL’ on 14095.6 kHz. The beacon is broadcasting from the research vessel ‘Polarstern’. The ship was then in the vicinity of Spitsbergen. The Polarstern is a German research vessel and also an icebreaker, equipped for research in polar regions. It also serves to supply several research stations in Antarctica. The Polarstern made headlines when it frozen into the ice in the Arctic winter of 2019-2020 to conduct lengthy research. The ship did not dock until October 2020!
