Dear friends and colleagues!
The expedition team of Russian Robinson – Vasily (R7AA), Vasily (RA1ZZ), Alexander (RA3AV) and Alex (RW3QNZ) is glad to announce that we are on the final stage of the preparation for the expedition to the Islands of the Barents sea, the island Chaichy, EU-160 and Timanets, EU-188.
If the weather will be appropriate waiting for us in the air from the first island since the 17th of July!
In preparation for the expedition we have made some changes in plans according the route and time of stay on the Islands.
We have managed to negotiate with the residents of coastal village Indiga about our transportation to the Islands by boat. This would help to cut back a long journey by sea and to stay longer on the Islands. We will get the village Indiga by the local airlines Antonov-2 airplane and tickets are already bought.
All major equipment was sent by sea shipping company the vessel to the sea and now awaiting discharge at the river mouth close to Indiga.
More detailed information can be found on the website of the expedition:http://ri1pc.org
Our team is very grateful to all the HAMs who have provided various assistance!
Who still wants to donate we gratefully accept it.
We hope for your support and good weather!
73! Team: RI1PC & RI1PT”
