    Special call sign for an astronomy outreach and scientific expedition (June 3-12) in the four main islands of the Marquesas Archipelago for the 2012 Venus Transit, of which Christian F5IDM (TX5VT) is a member of.

    Christian explains:

    As time permits, I will activate the special call sign TX5VenusTransit from the Marquesas Islands. It is not the most important goal of the expedition, but ham radio will be part of our outreach efforts. Scheds will be made with OMs in French Polynesia and New Caledonia to initiate students to ham radio and give them a chance to talk to others kids from far away.
