This is coolbert:
From MARCONI through Harry the URL for a Russian web cam of some interest.
A web cam located the vicinity of the naval base Severodvinsk.
"On Yagry beach not far from Severodvinsk naval base, - and due NE from the inlet to Severodvinsk harbour, there is a web cam with a one minute update rate. The lag from picture taken to web cast seems to be variable, but well within one minute too, making it fast enough to spot all ships, including Russian submarines entering the harbour."
"On the web cam image, the inlet to the harbour is in the upper left section of the view. The wind- and kite surfing station located on the beach, - and seen in the web cam images, is located at 64 35 41.06N 39 47 19.87E for those of you who would like a view of the area in GE [Google Earth] too."
Daylight and nighttime images available, all times in Universal Time Coordinated [used to be called GMT or Zulu time to American communicators].
AND ACCORDING TO MARCONI THE ENTRY OR EXIT OF NAVAL VESSELS CAN BE OBSERVED FROM THIS WEB CAM.
Very cool. This is the sort of thing that during the Cold War era would be classified TOP SECRET!!
Soviet/Russian submariners their duty most arduous in the extreme according to reports. Six months of duty in the far north followed by SIX MONTHS OF REST AND RECUPERATION AT THE BLACK SEA, LISTENING TO THE RECORDINGS OF SONG BIRDS WHILE IDLING AWAY ON THE BEACH!!
