R71RRC the expedition to the Arakamchechen Island, IOTA AS-071.

The dates are tentative and depend on local logistics and weather conditions. Team plans to be on the island at least 5- 7 days. Two operating positions will be on the air on 40, 30, 20 and 17 meters, CW and SSB. Equipment to be used: two Elecraft K3s, FT-857 (for redundancy), two 500 watts power amplifiers. The antennas are: 4 SQ for 20m, GP or 2 elements switchable for 30m, GP for 17m and GP for 40m. The electricity to be taken from two power generators (main and redundant).
QSL via UA3AKO (OQRS, direct and QSL bureau).
We are looking for technical possibility for uploading log periodically during the expedition. Possibly we will use the satellite phone for this. Due to remote location and transportation difficulties this trip is costly. Financial support appreciated. PayPal account r71rrc at gmail.com or victor.ri0x at gmail.com. Please include your call sign. We would appreciate if PayPal option "Send to friends and relatives" will be used.
The Bering Sea North Groupe (AS-071) is one of the rare by IOTA rating (most wanted) and just 6.1%. The previous activation was more than 25 years ago in 1991. Stay tuned!
