    Date unknown. Active; focal plane 36 m (118 ft); two flashes every 13.5 s, white, red or green depending on direction. 6 m (20 ft) vase-shaped octagonal metal tower mounted on a square platform. EDM restored this unusual light in 2007 and has the closeup photo seen at right, Lightphotos.net has a view by Sergey Shevkoplyas, Evgeny Grigor'ian has a distant view, and Google has a satellite view. Salnyy is a peanut-shaped island off the east coast of Kola Bay north of Severomorsk. Located on heights at the southwestern end of the island. Accessible only by boat. Site open, tower closed. ARLHS ERU-080(?); Admiralty L6306; RU-0500; NGA 15148

Looking for Chitnak or Chitmak on St Lawrence Island so tried the following link from the Russian Reference intro thread but the link fails:

Links to Russian Place Name Resources
Books/lists:
A gazetteer of whalers' place names for the Bering Strait region and the Western Arctic - thanks to Kevin (and DJ ;))
 :(


I'll drop a note to Kevin and DJ :)

Really struggling with this place - if only my Russian were up to the job  ;)

I have that file on my hard disk, but that place name doesn't seem to be on it.

Can you post a link to the page? Or ship and date?



Just found Chitnak
in Geographical Dictionary of Alaska:
Chitnak; native village and cape, on the southern shore of St. Lawrence Island,
Bearing Sea.  Native name.
Also written Tchitnak



Here: https://historicalcharts.noaa.gov/historicals/preview/image/9302-6-1900
and http://www.geonames.org/5874159/siknik-cape.html

The cape on the map, center bottom, at magenta dashed line says 'Chitmak', or 'Chitnak' if that's an 'H'.

Yes, the Russian map gives both names: Siknik; and, Chitnak.  It is a Cyrillic 'H' pronounced N.  ;)

Thank you so much Bob, Randi and Michael!  I was trying to find a decent English map of St Lawrence for over an hour yesterday - must have been a really bumbling effort from me - sigh  ::)

Here's the page ref for Alexander1 on 12 June 1901: https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/zooniverse/old-weather/talk/subjects/4618494
The next day it appears as 'Chitnak' .

And image:


To round off the story the Alexander accepted some goods from the Belena as payment to go look for the Gramphus (Grampus I believe) which is of the same Company and could effect a full rescue of goods/crew.  :)

Chitnak added to map, ref & csv (in Alaska thread - since St. Lawrence is there). Thanks Joan and good detective work everyone!
