Ham Radio at the most REMOTE place on Earth

It’s cold, it can be in complete darkness and weather conditions make it almost impossible to operate from. So how did Paul VK0PD / VK2PAD manage to successfully operate an amateur radio station from Casey Station in Antarctica? Paul shares his photos, experiences and life living and working down one of the most remote places on earth.

Filmed at the Radio and Electronics Association of Southern Tasmania:
