More than 100 Russian Radio Amateurs are joining a very important event in the city of Orel.
Several of the best well known Russian callsign, those who we have on our logs since many years now are sitting up there. The conference celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the foundation of Russian Robinson Club has been inaugurated yesterday Friday afternoon (RU local time) Sept 22nd.
UA9OBA Yuri Zaruba (Senior President), RZ3EC Eugene Shelkanovtsev (Vice President) and RA3NAN Sergey Morozov (Vice President) greeted the Hams present and began the work of the conference which is still going on.

Tomorrow a gala banquet will close the celebration. Unfortunately Valery Sushkov RW3GW the actual RRC President, could not attend the event as he is busy in preparing a big project on bigfoot Yeti in Udmurtia.
Gianni, I1HYW on behalf of WAP (Worldwide Antarctic Program) sent a video message with congratulation to the Russian Robinson club for the 30 decades of continuous DX work including several expeditions in Antarctica and in the Arctic as well as many rare islands all over the world!
The video was shown Friday at the opening ceremony.
To everyone involved, our best Congratulation, We hope to see RRC soon on the air again from some rare spots maybe in the Arctic or Antarctica as they have accustomed us for many years!
