Our team has now assembled in Islamabad and they are making final preparations before leaving for Skardu. Part of this prep includes a good test of the audio dispatches to come during the expedition.
You can hear below our first of two tests (from different phones!) from Ben on a super hot day on the roof of our hote in Islamabad. No doubt that with temperatures hovering at about 40°C / 104°F the team is enjoying the cool of the markets and restaurants as much as they can. Brad has written up a dispatch which we'll post shortly so stay tuned!
"This is Ben calling you from the roof top of Envoy Continental in Islamabad. Testing the Ipadio dispatch for Broad Peak 2012. Brad's with me here and it's a lovely hot day here. Probably 46 degrees celsius and I'm feeling it out here testing the solar gear, testing the sat phone. It's 40 degrees on the dot!
Alright, cheers guys, over and out"
Mobile Device users:
Please note Ipadio is flash-based so you may not be able to hear them here on your mobile devices like Iphones and Ipads. We are looking for a fix and hope to have one shortly!
In the mean time you can hear them on your mobile device by visiting our channel on the IPadio site itself: FTA Audio Dispatches on IPadio
