March 24, 2015 – Vasily R7AL and Vasily R6AL are proud to announce an IOTA expedition to Malminskiye Islands AS-172 – a very rare island group claimed only by 8.3% of participants.

These rocks are located far away from civilization, the nearest and only one settlement is 40 Km away. Since there are vessels available, the only one way is by small fishing motorboat; that’s two trips, 80 Km. each needed to deliver all the equipment and operators to the island.

Approximate dates: 3 days between 8th to 16th of August 2015.

Since this is an IOTA expedition, focus is on 2 bands only, possibly 20 and 17 meters, but it’s not confirmed yet and subject for discussion. Modes will be CW and SSB only.
