Gentlemen, all our Arctic expeditions are very expensive. All the time, before each expedition, we always come up with something new and special to make your support of us more interesting and attractive. In this expedition we want to introduce a special QSL called “fast”. All “fast” QSLs will be sent out from the very first functioning post office on our way back. Most likely it will be in Khatanga settlement (UA0A). “Fast” QSL is a special designed postcard with a real 1987 year photograph of Preobrazheniya polar meteorological station (18 km from Bolshoy Begichev island) stamped by two stamps. The first one is the original 1987 year stamp found at Preobrazheniya station (closed in 1990 and abandoned). The second is a modern copy of this stamp made for our 2021 expedition.
The cost of a QSL is $ 30. It can be paid via PayPal. Links are at www.qrz.com/db/ri0q
Those who wish to receive this exclusive card must order it prior to the expedition start.
All others will receive traditional confirmation (OQRS, LoTW, ClubLog). IOTA credit via Сlublog will be opened in 6 months after the end of the expedition.
