AS-152. (RI0Q Bol’shoy Begichev Island Update). From QRZ.com, date September 20th: 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 USDs. 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 ?lublog will be opened in 6 months after the end of the expedition.
EDITOR’S NOTES: Members of the Arctic Legends team (RT9K) are planning to activate the Island of Big Begichev (Bol?shoy Begichev) sometime in early 2021. The team recently received the callsign RI0Q for the DXpedition. The team is looking for funds (15,000 USDs was mentioned) to conduct this operation. To achieve their goal to operate from Bolshoj Begichev Island, the team will have to travel 3624 km (by snowmobiles 1812 km*2). Watch for updates on Twitter by Igor, UA9KDF.
