The Heard reflector will be the main forum in which you, our audience, can participate in our expedition. Through the reflector, you will be able to pass us your feedback. It will be the focal point for all updates and feedback coming from the expedition team on the island. And... our pilot stations will broadcast general info on the island, the environment, our setup, the team, the challenges we are encountering, and other information of interest.
In addition, the reflector will cater to free flow discussions between yourselves and the expedition's pilots. Tips, recommendations, questions and answers, anything related to the Heard expedition are proper topics for the Heard reflector!
Due to the limited time and bandwidth available, the expedition members on the island will not be on the reflector. All information to and from the island will be channeled through the pilot stations. It will be the ONLY reflector on which our pilot stations will be engaged in discussions concerning the operation.
We cordially invite you to join the expedition reflector today. Here's how to do it:
