EK1NWB Prehistory: In 1991 (how it is far from the time!) the Karelian
DX-club Kivach has organized DX -expedition on Kizhi island,
which is located in LakeOnega.
I was a member of the club, so I with pleasure took part in
the expedition. The DX- expedition took place from July 24 till
August 8, 1991.

Issued for my new call UZ3ZK
Landing: The first group of 6 hams was landed to Kizhi near
of July 24,1991.
After we had moved almost 1000 kg (2200 pounds) of our stuff
to the site of our expedition, it was approximately 2 kilometers
from the landing place, we have begun to set tents. Then UA1NDR and UV3VJ
did connection to an emergency power main of the local Fire
Service. At last, by to our tents were installed, we had 220 Volts inside
the main tent, our equipment was ready for operation, but we
had no antennas.
