The Tropospheric Radio Relay network called Sever (North) is a former Soviet system of communications lines the purpose of which was to provide connection between remote parts of the country. The line is 13 200 km long and consists of 46 Tropospheric Radio Relay Stations (TRRS) located mainly along the coast of the Northern and Pacific Ocean and largest Siberian rivers.

The system was launched in the end of 1960. With its help people of the Far North and Far East of Russia were connected to one another. The system actually embraced a network of stations located 120-145 km away from one another. Every such a station was represented by a military town that could supply itself with energy and heat, water and necessary goods.

The TRRS-60 we are visiting today was situated on the Far North of Russia that was launched in 1966.
