Next demonstration was setting up and using the electric winch. Now I am finally free to use the Hagglunds out on the sea ice. After lunch I did some more work on my underwater camera. I made a rudder to hopefully stop it turning or spinning in the current or from cable twist. If this does not prove successful then I will attach a heavy weight on a one meter cable below the camera to hold it still on the sea bed.
Before dinner I had a BPSK digital QSO with a guy on Reunion Island who I had talked to before from Perth. After dinner Keldyn and I started making a souvenir ice axe. We cut the two ice axe head pieces out of some five millimetre brass bar and within a few hours we had roughly shaped them and I had started to cut the teeth into mine. Every Monday we will spend a few working on them and it shouldn't take too long to finish and they will be nice souvenirs to take home and remember our time spent down here.
