The following is taken from the U60A QSL card:
"November 7, 1977, marked 60 years of the Great October Socialist Revolution.
This date is an important milestone in the life of Soviet people and the world liberation movement.
To commemorate the anniversary Soviet amateur radio operators have carried out DX-pedition <<October-60>>.
It began on board the historical cruiser <<Aurora>> in Leningrad and went through the cities that had been the first to
receive the radio message of the Revolution's victory."
The following is from DXNS #757, dated 1977-04-05:
"OKTYABR-60 - to commemorate the 60th anniversary of (the) Great October Socialist Revolution in 1917 station U60A
will operate from aboard the cruiser Aurora anchored at Leningrad from 0700 April 22 to 2100 April 23rd <snip>.
Another 15 stations will use the U60 prefix in Soviet cities May/June/July/Aug/Sept/Oct 7th 0700 - 8th 2100."
Examination of the Club Log QSO database shows that, in fact, U60A was also QRV on 7th/8th of each month.
From the Club Log QSO database, and DXNS #765, dated 1977-05-31, the following stations were active:
|Aurora museum ship, OK for DXCC
|UA3I (not Kaliningrad)
|Rostov on Don
