Many of you can rememer the RI0B callsign sounding back in 2001 from Ushakova Island. Our team has decided to give this callsign a second breath. Moreover, one of our current team members (Andy Moiseev UA0BA) was the member of the old “Lost Islands” expedition too.
And so after his suggestion and blessing we’ve taken the same callsign RI0B for our new expedition again.
Our new expedition ‘Arctic legends 2018’ will take place in September this year.
The route is as follows:
Dudinka – Dickson – Firnley Islands (AS- 054), Tyrtova Island (AS-121 ) – Nansena Island ( AS- 104 ),
Skott-Gansena Island ( AS – 068 ), Arkticheskogo Instituta Islands( AS- 087 ) – Sibiryakova Island, ( AS- 005 ) – Dudinka
