New friends of the Project. Mike Hewitt, England

Dear Alex, I have just found your exhibition web site: First exhibition at the North Pole I am truly delighted and thrilled that the polar events of 1937 have been remembered in such a wonderful way. My interest in this polar story started in 1969 when I received a letter and RAEM/MM QSL from Ernst Krenkel - see attached - in response to a short wave listener report I sent him on his transmissions from the Professor Zubov on its way back from the Antarctic. Since 1972 I have had my own amateur radio callsign (G4AYO) and have put together a very large collection of Krenkel memorabilia, based on his book "RAEM Is My Callsign".
