Please be aware that I will be away from the Officer for the next week +/-.

Emails will be answered as and when I have service but Missing/Busted Call checks, Log Enquiries, Log uploads and QSL Card processing will most likely NOT be done until I return as Internet access will have its limitations.

RI0B Arctic Legends Tour 2018 …update


Many of you can remember 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.

Participants will visit islands, near which the legendary schooner Fram of an expedition of F. Nansen (1893) drifted 125 years ago. The team will make radio communication sessions on short waves with the whole world. The expedition targets include studying and testing the short waves propagation and new the types of digital communication in the Arctic regions, photo and video filming of Arctic flora and fauna, environmental monitoring of the area. By means of holding scientific and technical actions the purpose of team is promoting the names of travelers with which names of northern territories of the Russian Federation are connected. After completion of the “Arctic’s Legends” expeditions participants will hold meetings with youth, lectures and photo exhibitions and also will report results to the general public.

Our route is as follows: Arhangelsk – Dickson – Firnley Islands (AS- 054 ) – Tyrtova Island (AS-121 )  – Rozmyslov Island ( AS-104 ) – Nansena Island ( AS- 104 ) – Skott-Gansena Island ( AS – 068 ) – Arkticheskogo Instituta Islands( AS- 087 ) – Sibiryakova Island ( AS- 005 ) – Dudinka .   The whole route will take place on the yacht “Apostol Andrey” under the supervision of Captain Nikolay Andreevich Litau.   R3CN
