Film about polar expedition RI0Q “Arctic Legends” 2021 to the Bolshoy Begichev Island, Laptev Sea – IOTA AS-152. We present to your attention a video film about the IOTA expedition RI0Q “Arctic Legends” to Bolshoy Begichev Island – AS-152, which took place in March-April 2021 under the flags of the Russian Geographical Society and Russian Robinson Club.

The team: Igor UA9KDF (leader), Andrey UA9LDD, Andrey UA0BA, Victor RW0BG and three travellers under the club call sign RT9K. Participants covered over 4,000 km by snowmobile from Yamal through Taimyr to the Laptev Sea (Yakutia). In extreme conditions of low temperatures (37 degrees Celsius below zero and less!), the team managed to reach Bolshoy Begichev Island, set up an autonomous camp and go on the air as RI0Q. As a result, 7000 QSO’s in a few days!

Read more about the expedition here about how it was, what difficulties travellers overcame on the way to the island. See the film “Expedition “Arctic Legends” 2021 to the Bolshoy Begichev Island” (English, duration 31 minutes) – here
