Olex Ingerov, Svetlana Borisova, Pavel Vakhrameev and Mits Yamashita study the V6A receiver during the training session at Phoenix.
Phoenix has made its fist equipment sale to Uzbekistan, a controlled source system which includes the T3 transmitter and the V6A multifunction receiver (see photo, p.5).
The client, SamGeolTechService, has wide experience in EM techniques and will use their new system for a variety of applications, including engineering and mining exploration surveys.
Svetlana Borisova and Pavel Vakhramaeev of SamGeo visited Phoenix in May for training on the recent purchase. The company is located in Samarkand, the oldest city in Central Asia and one of the oldest in the word, dating to about 3000 B.C. The city has a fascinating and colorful history. Its strategic location placed it in the path of many conquerors, including that of Alexander the Great in 329 B.C. A meeting point between East and West, Samarkand was destroyed by Genghis Khan in 1220, but resurrected in the 1300s when another Mongol Emperor, Tamerlane, made it his fabulous capital.
Samarkand boasts many striking architectural treasures, including mosques and Tamerlane's mausoleum. Uzbekistan (a former replublic of the USSR) is a landlocked country about the size of Sweden, located in central Asia. Its current capital is Tashkent.
