very good that it counts as FJL. Any idea how long they plan to be active once landed on the island ? I guess the sailing trip from Murmansk will take them 3 days or so.

wondering if there is any info as to how long they plan to stay on the island ? 1 week ? Also, is it 100% sure that it will count as DXCC entity Franz-Josef-Land ? I think originally it was listed as Spitzbergen, wasn´t it ?
