Here are a few links you may find interesting, in light of all the rare 
DXpeditions going on right now.

Google map of Heard Island:
Click on either of the photos on the left to see more photos of the 
island.  Notice the scroll arrow on the right below the photos to get 
more photos.

Weather map of conditions on Heard Island.  After looking at that, close 
the pane on the right and zoom out to see all those perpetual storms 
that exist in the 50 degrees south latitude area around Antarctica.  
It's just a matter of time before you get hit at that latitude.,-53.084,74.570,9

More info is available on the Heard Island DXpedition website:
 From their website: They now have the 80 meter vertical up but failed 
to get the 160 antenna up this morning because of high winds.  (No 
wonder! Check that weather map link above.)

And of course, Google Earth has good aerial views of all the rare DX 
locations active right now.

Good luck to all the guys on Heard Island.
