About the 1992 visit to the former Soviet Union -
David (KK4WW) & Gaynell (KK4WWW) Larsen first visited the Soviet Union in 1990 before the breakup of the Soviet Union. In the early 90's the 'Foundation for International Radio Service (FAIRS) was formed. This video was part of a training and Outreach for 'Virginia Tect' in Blacksburg, VA. We were fortunate to have Jerry Scheeler, a film producer from the university accompany us during the 1992 visit shown in this video. Jerry was the videographer & editor for this video. We continue today to have contact and projects with many of the folks seen in the video. It was very exciting to be working in the Soviet Union during this time and we had many great experiences . We are sad to say to of our fellow American traveler - John Douglas N0ISA and Ukrainian friend Vlad Goncharsky U5WF have passed on and as ham radio folks say - They are now silent keys. FAIRS members made many additional visits to the former Soviet Union during the 90's. During all these visit FAIRS members received Russian or Ukrainian ham radio licenses and operated from various locations. Dave KK4WW had licenses LC4WW , US5WW and others -- It was a lot of fun with the Russian and Ukrainian hams.

Our Ham Radio host for all these trips was Victor Goncharsky US5WE and his wife Helen Goncharsky UR5WA. Victor and Helen have also visited us a number of times in the US. We hope to have Helen here for the 2013 Dayton Hamvention. We continue to this day to have on going FAIRS projects with Victor and his FAIRS members in the Ukraine.
