I give you my top 5 reasons why I participate in the SOTA program. I am trying to dip my toes into Parks on the Air a little bit too, so I make this a dual activation – SOTA/POTA.

I made contact with Paul VK0PD, in Antarctica!

Paul VK0PD based in Casey Station, Antarctica popped up on 20 metres this afternoon and after trying for a week to make contact I decided to go portable and try. Paul has been creating lots of pileups working hundreds of stations who want to work VK0. Despite the terrible weather, it was well worth the effort of going portable!

Check out more about VK0PD’s operations here:
