Talk about social distancing … Fedor Konyukhov, R0FK, set sail with a Russian research team in mid-July for the North Pole. In addition to studying ice melt patterns and drift routes, Newsline reports that he will set up a shack on an ice floe and operate R0FK/POLE on 20 meters. 

In addition to being a scientist and a ham, Konyukhov is also a writer and an artist. He hopes to combine all four of these passions during the expedition.
