Narrative

Ubicada frente a caleta Brialmont, costa Danco, W de la península Antártica. Originalmente cartografiado y bautizado "Cabo Von Sterneck" por la Expedición Antártica Belga el 24 de enero de 1898, en honor del General R. Von Sterneck, de Viena, quien diseñó el péndulo, aparato usado por la expedición. Posteriores investigaciones llevaron a Gran Bretaña a imponer el nombre de "Isla Sterneck". Chile la llama "Isla Telegrafista Rivera", mientras que la república Argentina la denomina "Isla Apéndice". Fue relevada y nominada por la C.A.A. 1953/54 en forma descriptiva por su aspecto tan característico. SHN carta H-714.
