I'm communication manager of 3-th expedition on the Vernadsky station. I was born and lives in the big town Kharkov with population about 2 millions. My age is 28 years only. In 1994, i has ended study in the Kharkov Aviation Academy at the radio engineering faculty. I had been going to Arctic after defended of a thesis. Since 1994 till 1997 i worked on the northern point of Euro-Asian continent Cape Chelyuskin. I made a career quickly: from radio operator to chief of air base. It was a exciting and interesting time. Helicopters, air crafts, ice-bears, deers, salmons, polar lights and clear relations between peoples. We knew one to one from Franz-Josef Land to Uelen, on the territory about 6 000 km, because not more peoples lives there. My call was R0/UR8LV there. I jumped from island to island very often by helicopter. I have no more words about. You must to visit Arctic and make a love to this Lady. I knew Roman well very long time ago. One of visit to home he offer to replace Paul and him on Vernadsky base. It was a impressive proposal: i dreamed about Antarctica! I said YES. My call sign is EM1LV and 140URL9909. The second call is a first official call for CB from this point. Roma(EM1KA) and Pavel(EM1HO) like not CB.
