Besides San Felix and Gonzalez, the 'Isla San Ambrosio' belongs to the island
group Islas Desventuradas ("Dry Islands"). They are situated some 1100 km west
of the Chilenian northern coast at 26°20'S, 80°10'W. The whole archipelago is
only about 3,3 sq km big. West of San Ambrosio one can find the rock Roca
Conica, in the East Roca Bass and the four Rocas Mas Afuerra.
Like said by the Spanish name there is no water there. The only plants
growing on the island are bushes and cacti. The only animals living there are
sea birds, lizards and turtles. The climate is hot and dry and except from some
fishermen coming only for a few days these islands are uninhabited at all.
Some sources state that this island group has been discovered by Ferdinand
Magellan after he passed the Magellan Strait on Noc 27, 1521 and sailing to the
northwest for three months and 20 days. The first land he saw within the Pacific
were only two uninhabited rocks! So he named them Desventuradas.
The island group is situated within CQ zone 12, ITU zone 14, IOTA number is
SA-013. The time difference to UTC is minus 4 hours.
