It will connect tundra residents with relatives and emergency services.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Reindeer herders of the Far North will once again have a shortwave communication system, lost in the 1990s. It is being recreated – but on a new, digital level – at the Novosibirsk State Technical University (NSTU).

University specialists have developed lightweight mobile omnidirectional antennas, TASS reports.

“The NSTU’s radio-electronic equipment design and technology department’s research team has modernized a set of three serial short-wave radio stations provided by the Yegorshinsky radio plant, providing them with specially designed lightweight portable omnidirectional antennas. Laboratory and field tests of the system in the Novosibirsk region and the Republic of Saha (Yakutia) showed the idea’s promise and feasibility”, said the developers.

It is planned that the system will be used by reindeer herders and residents of remote villages of the Far North to communicate with relatives, local authorities, medical institutions and the Ministry of Emergency Situations.
