Oleg ZS1OIN (UA3HK) has moved from the Russian Antarctic base “Molodezhnaya” to the station “Progress” located in coordinates 69*22’S, 76*23’E recently. Oleg managed to work RI1ANA from seasonal base “Molodezhnaya” on bands 21, 14, 7 and 3,5 MHz. Now he will be active on air with callsign RI1ANN from the “Progress” station where he will stay only until February 22. Then departure on the research vessel (RV) “Academik Fyodorov” to Cape Town (Republic of South Africa) is necessary. QSL via ZS1OIN.

Establishment of radio communications with RI1ANN — a good opportunity for performance of conditions of the diploma RABA (“Russian Antarctic Bases Award”) which is issued for QSO/SWL with the radio stations located in the territory of the Russian Antarctic stations and bases. With conditions of the diploma and an award RABA – Honour Roll can get acquainted on RRC website — www.robinsons.ru
