MAY 11, 2019 — UA6EX Eugene, UA7A Leonid and R7AA Vasily (under the banner of Russian Robinson Club) announce an IOTA DXpedition to Popigay-Ary Island AS-063 during mid-July 2019. This IOTA group is most wanted at just 6.5% claimed. The team plan to stay in Khatanga Bay region for 2 weeks and will also try activate Bol’shoy Begichev AS-152 during this period.

  • R63RRC, Popigay-Ary island, IOTA: AS-063, RRA: NEW ONE, WWloc: OQ32AW, RDA: KK-65, Krasnoyarsk region (R0B).
  • RQ73QQ, Bol’shoy Begichev island, IOTA: AS-152, RRA: RR-08-04, WWloc: OQ64AM, RDA: YA-10, Republic of Sakha (R0Q).

Water trips to and from the islands are about 800 km distance. The team seeks one more operator (who will pay for their plane tickets and some of the other costs). Contact the team at: r7aa@mail.ru. The project is quite expensive due to flights in Upper North.


  1. R63RRC worked 25 July 2019 @ 23:34z, 14.026 mHz (QSX up 1)… using 100 watts to Hexbeam pointed due north, K-index at zero. Many thanks for AS-063 and rare ITU Zone 22 (both ATNO for me)! Good luck and safe travels to team!! VY 73, Bill W1WBB
