I took my ft-817 to Antarctica on the Lindblad ship.  Captain gave me 
permission to operate. The radio op, Sven, chuckled about my one watt and 
makeshift dipole on 10 and 15M.  Tough to get anyone to listen down there 
with no reflector available.  Lindblad is the group that has a trip for hams 
to Svalbard.  Doubt the big cruise lines will be as flexible with their no 
bridge, etc rules.  I want to do the Falkland to Eu translocation cruise 
with Lindblad with more power.  Great outfit.
