      " Hi, Jerry, Mitchell and Dominik.
      Just yesterday we visited R1ANF web site. Looks very nice. I hope it is interesting for people and usefull for “AlfaRadio” and “SteppIR”. Also was very nice to work with all of you, using rotator and antenna. I have to say that for us is looks like somebody cleaned durty window and we can see the world again! :-) Alex and me, we really enjoy it. Even Slava, who sad “Goodbye ham-radio” some years ago, started to wrk CW again and agree to participate our future small DX-pedition to Ardley island next week. Today I was using antenna on 16534 khz, with our supply vessel “Akademik Fedorov”, which stays near Progress station (abt 69s and 78e) Direction 160 degrees. Good result! They gave me nice report. I could say, that SteppIR is exactly right for Bellingshausen, cause we can use it not just for ham radio. And this is very important, belive me, my friends. Fine. Now some photos and information for web site"
