ALEUTIAN ISLANDS WITH KL7RRC DXPEDITION -- Kiska Island (NA-070) & Adak Island (NA-039) in Alaska's Aleutians to be Activated --
After their Covid-related cancellation last year, the Russian Robinson Club (KL7RRC www.na-234.com ) has resumed plans to activate rare Kiska Island, IOTA NA-070 in July. Located 52.06N, 177.57E, this uninhabited island lies in the North Pacific's treacherous Bering Sea, one of the most intense patches of ocean on Earth, where strong winds, freezing temperatures, and icy water are the "norm." This remote Island also features the prominent conical, Kiska volcano, the westernmost historically active volcano in Alaska's Aleutian Island chain. Kiska Island is also designated as an Aleutian Island WWII
National Historic Area by the National Park Service. Permission to visit Kiska is required from both Alaska's Maritime National Wildlife Refuge and the US Fish and Wildlife Service. The KL7RRC team currently includes: Hal/W8HC, Rob/N7QT, Tim/NL8F, Walt/N6XG and Yuri/N3QQ.
Unfortunately, another team member has had to back out so there is currently an open slot for a 5th operator. Contact team leader Yuri, N3QQ, (Dit e-mailadres wordt beveiligd tegen spambots. JavaScript dient ingeschakeld te zijn om het te bekijken.) if you may be interested.
The team plans to have a minimum of 2 stations QRV operating 40m through 6m, SSB, CW and FT8 with 1.2kw PAs. Special emphasis will be on the difficult trans-polar path to EU.
The 56-foot aluminum sailboat, "SEAL" (https://expeditionsail.com/) is being chartered out of Cordova, AK. It will undertake the arduous 1,000 mile journey along the Aleutians to Kiska with first stop at Dutch Harbor, AK, to pick up Tim, NL8F, and all of the gear sent in advance to his QTH. They will then continue sailing westward to Adak Island (NA-039) where the remainder of the team will have flown in to by July 3rd, board SV SEAL, and with favorable winds and seas, they hope to arrive at Kiska and be QRV as KL7RCC from July 7th - 12th, before the return sail back to Adak and flights home booked for July 17th. Some members of the team will travel out to Adak a few days in advance of the scheduled July 3rd pick-up by SEAL and will be QRV from this rare IOTA entity. Look for KL7RRC from Adak, NA-039 June 30th – July 3rd. Likewise, there may be additional KL7RRC activity from Adak July 14th - 16th following their return from Kiska.
The budget for this IOTA DXpedition, excluding individual team member airfares, lodging and meals at Adak, is ~$40K, with $30K required for the SV SEAL charter and two-way journey between Cordova and Kiska. Obviously, donations will be greatly appreciated in support of this challenging IOTA DXpedition. They can be sent via PayPal linked to the RRC website: (www.na-234.com)
or via check and payable to: Russian Robinson Club and note "Donation for KL7RRC 2021 Expedition." Please mail to Yuri, N3QQ, via his QRZ.com mailing address.
