Andrew ReveszBy Andrew Revesz

This is quite the adventure. It seems BASE jumpers are getting bored with normal antennas and have decided to up the ante. I can hear it now, Theyve got two 800 foot antennas, each emitting millions of kilowatts of radioactivity. Yes, doing a 5-way BASE jump off the legendary DUGA within the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone is badass (read: crazy)… but not as badass as paddling across a river in a little rubber dinghy. ‘Nuff said.
