* We now plan for 4-5 stations with Elecraft K3/Kx3 and 1000W amplifiers which includes inband operation and all modes CW/SSB/FT8.
* We have extended the security and will bring with us 2 Huskys for added polar bear protection in addition to one person on duty 24/7
* We need an expensive mandatory SAR insurance. This adds to the expenses so our budget is going up to 16000 USDs.
