In March 1977 an unmanned ELF/VLF goniometer receiving station was deployed on the Antarctic plateau 110 km south south west of the British Antarctic Survey base at Halley. A UHF Telemetry link enabled the ELF and VLF signals to be monitored and recorded at Halley, simultaneously with data from an identical ELF/VLF receiver at Halley. The remote station was designed for unattended operation with a wind driven generator to recharge its battery. Design considerations and problems encountered are discussed and some preliminary results are presented.
