CANCELLED: Pilot station RA3CQ informs that the RT9K/P expedition is cancelled. Temperature in Nadym is over 0 deg C. Snow is melting. The next weeks forecast is also with positive temperatures. Ice is weak for the snowmobile and tricky for a boat to navigate. So the team returns back home – but they can’t use snowmobiles as there is no snow so they will have to find a different method of transportation.
March 27, 2012 — A group of Russian amateurs consisting team leader UA9KDF (Igor), RG8K (Valery), UA9KAM (Artyom), Daniil and Andrey (no calls) will be active as RT9K/p between April 1-5, 2012 from the Zhuravlinyy Island AS-109, Obskaya Gulf group. To reach the island, the team will require the use of three snowmobiles.
They will use a Kenwood TS-590 & Yaesu FT-857 along with a BiggIR 80-10m and Robinson RR-33 + ACOM-1010.
All QSLs will be sent via the Bureau automatically. However, if you would like to get the QSL direct send to RX9KM.
