Ever wondered what it's like to run portable from Antarctica? Paul VK0PD has been operating a amateur radio station from Casey Station since March 2021. In this video I catch up with Paul and discuss what it's like to operate in such harsh environments, the DX contacts he's enjoyed so far and what his interests are in ham radio.
