Many will know I don't like "5NN" and wish it would be dropped in favour of just R TU, but this video is very moving and thrilling, I think many CW Ops will enjoy it -- those are crazy/brave/skilled people to do something like this! Maybe I'm the same for doing DX stuff in Africa and war zones, but to me the desolation and isolation of the North and South Pole is really scary!

ENJOY:

Maybe even better, shorter, NN TU  Grin
or NTU or TTU, or just NN (99) which means Get Lost (I've got your callsign in the log, now get lost) Roll Eyes

Seriously, the above video, though in low resolution, is a great film and well worth watching!

I was thinking of those with the "bad habit" of sending EN instead of R.

Thanks. Will watch it later.

By the lack of responses here, I can only imagine few have taken a look at the film. I think if you start to watch it you won't want to stop. It's very interesting, it's only a pity this is not available, it would seem, in higher resolution. A real DX pedition, real adventure, real bravery!

Welcome Jeff and nice to meet you here, hope we all hear from you more and especially that we get chance to QSO on air in future. I hope some day to have an antenna favouring North America, at this QTH it's very difficult.

Lou, I watched it, with a bit of skipping through to the action. As always I don't understand why anyone would choose to explore those freezing regions but admire them for doing it. For me the most heroic story was that of Shackleton's expedition and its return 101 years ago.

Thanks for the link.  I watched it this past weekend. 

I don't tolerate the cold as well as that bunch and could never imagine what those conditions must be like.
