A TECHWR-L subscriber is currently marooned at
the south pole (really) and needs a bit of help
with some jargon. I swear this isn't a joke.

Message follows:
>so-i am happily working away at south pole station and while it's a
>trip being here, we are inside a massive geodesic dome, we have
>limited references.

>could you post for me, the question of what does UNICOM stand for?
>it's an acronym that i believe is in use in the military and is used
>heavily by communications folks down here-but no one- and it is
>getting amusing now-can figure out what it means.

>(a temporary polie)
>praderla -at- cyprus -dot- spole -dot- gov
