The expedition of the RI0QQ team to AS-082 has ended.
In addition to the announced antennas, a 3-element VDA antenna for 17 meters was assembled on the island.
We tried to make as many QSOs as possible. Stormy weather with heavy rain on the night of August 1 forced us to do QRT 8 hours ahead of schedule.
The return from the island was not easy, but our captain Nikolay Tymchuk coped with this task.
The RI0QQ team has made over 10,000 QSOs.
We thank all radio amateurs who called, spotted in the DX-Cluster, provided moral and material support.
See you on the air from the new islands.
