NEWS UPDATE by R2DX @ EX0QR — We installed all antennas, and now like to send photos to DX-World of our expedition. Unfortunately, only three of us, so difficult to carry out everything that was planned! We set-upin  farm, one kilometer from the southern coast of Lake Issyk Kul in the foothills of Tien Shan at height about 2000 meters from sea level.

We installed following antennas:

  • SteppIr BigIr (vertical) + 80mSteppIr 2 Element Yagi Antenna 20m-6m.
  • 4 Element Fix Yagi 30m the direction on NA and Northern Europe.
  • Vertical 80m-160m.
  • RX antenna by 300 degrees.

The farmer has a herd of sheep and small herd of horses; there is a problem — every day it is necessary to restore the RX antenna!

Some photos of our expedition exclusively for DX-World readers.

Yuri R2DY, Pavel R2DX and Eugeni RW3FB will be active from the south shore of Issyk Kul Lake, Kyrgyzstan as EX0QR during March 6-17, 2020. QRV on 160-10m; CW/SSB/Digi. QSL via R2DX, Club Log OQRS.
