tres  to go before  they get to  Rykachev Island  (AS-104).  They anticipate

See https://legendsarctic.com/dnevnik_ekspe ... v_rykachev  for 

RSGB COMMONWEALTH CONTEST ---> The 85th edition of the  Commonwealth  (BERU)

from 10.00 UTC to 09.59 UTC,  on 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10m  CW. Only  operators

* QRZ has reinstated the Russian  and  Belarusian callsigns  that were  tem- 
  porarily removed  [425DXN 1609]. "The 24-hour restriction  on our database 
  has ended", AA7BQ  announced on 4 March.  "It was done in protest to raise 
  awareness of the situation  in Ukraine and it wasn't without controversy", 
  he says. "I'm sorry for causing such an uproar and you can be certain that 
  it won't happen again, to any country or region for as long as QRZ lives". 
* On 4 March the  Radio Society of Great Britain  announced its decision  to 
  "follow the actions of  the mainstream sporting bodies with regard  to all 
  activities of a competitive nature such as contests and ARDF. Russian  and 
  Belarusian radio amateurs are  therefore currently ineligible  to partici- 
  pate in any event that is organised/sponsored by the RSGB".  For RSGB Con- 
  tests,  "until further notice,  all logs  received  from  stations  in the 
  Russian Federation or Belarus will be treated as check logs". 

+ SILENT KEY + Reportedly, Ivan Lysenko, UR8GX  was killed  in action  while 
defending his  home city of  Kherson, Ukraine  a few days ago.  Ivan was  an 
active DXer and a well known contester; he also operated with the UR1G  team 
from the Kalanchakskiye Islands (EU-179)  during the  IOTA Contest  over the 
past few years.
