David Huntsman, an IT project manager at Antarctic Support Contract, escorted me around T-Site, an area off limits to all but communications support people and utility techs. T-Site, which stands for transmitter or telecommunications site, I’ve heard both, is the communications hub of McMurdo Station, with many rhombic antennas and a building housing the comm equipment. My understanding is that this site handles most of the communication to and from McMurdo to sites around Antarctica. The site is near Crater Heights, and overlooks McMurdo Station, providing an excellent panorama of the station and Observation Hill. We also visited a nearby NASA communications up-link site.
