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 Lake Onega. 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.

Landing: The first group of 6 hams was landed to Kizhi near 8.00 p.m. 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 00.00 a.m. our tents were installed, we had 220 Volts inside the main tent, our equipment was ready for operation, but we had no antennas.
