30th Anniversary of the Chernobyl Nuclear Plant Disaster
On 26 April 1986 at 0123 Kyiv time, a series of powerful explosions destroyed the fourth reactor of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant (NPP) that resulted in a significant release of radioactive substances. This terrible event was classified at the international scale of nuclear incidents as an accident of the seventh, or highest level of severity.

To honor the memory of those who risked their lives and health, ham radio operators in todaty in the year 2016 will send their amateur radio message to publicize "Chernobyl-30". A number of special call signs, will be active, and from clubs of the Ukraine and other countries will offer memorable diplomas to mark the event. The list of diplomas and special calls can be found in special sections of the site http://1986.pp.ua/ru/ .

Watch the video, observe the fear and determination of the men who flew the helicopters to extinguish nuclear fires, many of whom were soon to perish.
