Amateur Radio Remote Broadcast

A team of radio fans will go to great lengths to be on the air from the ends of the Earth.

This is not the kind of trip you can book on Travelocity or Orbitz.

Later this month, a group of amateur radio enthusiasts, including two from Central Florida, will embark on a journey to a remote Antarctic island called Peter I.

The expedition might as well be going to another planet: Peter I is one of the hardest places on the globe to reach, an uninhabited, volcanic island about 280 miles west of the Antarctic mainland and roughly 8,000 miles from Orlando.

One of the biggest challenges members have faced already is explaining why on earth they're doing this.
