In 1989 the U- QRP- C has
organized the first QRP-expedition of the Club to a border "Europe
– Asia." The special call was received- EK3QRP. Members
of U- QRP- C came
Vladivostok, Kamchatka, Zhitomir to take part in the pedition. The expedition was fine organized by Alexey Trushkov, (ex UW9CX). The pedition
was placed on the mountain Volchiha,
523 meters under sea level. Lots interesting QRP- QSO with all continents were made.
Unfortunately, soon came
times of disintegration of the Soviet Union.
Since beginning of the 1991 it was very hard times for all people
in the USSR.
Oleg could not be a president due hard circumstances. So in
1990 Sergey Pichurichkin from Saransk
was elected as the president of the U- QRP- C. However, in the
nearest future after destroying the USSR
in 1991after putsch the U- QRP- C slowly died.
I. G.: I had met with Sergey in Moscow
in 1992, we had discussed lots question about – U- QRP- C, about
the further development of the U- QRP- C. We have taken several
important decisions that could be to U- QRP- C help to grow
and strength. Alas, the USSR was destroyed, every small country (ever
small region, town or a village) from the former USSR wants to have own QRP- club. Of course, it was only good wishes, but to ensue the U- QRP- C (as the ex- USSR
club) was destroyed, but no new strong QRP clubs were created
in the land of former USSR
at the times.
