Broiling sausage on a camp fire with Elmeri
has a MSc. in civil engineering and works as Project
Engineer at Consulting
Traffic Engineers A-Tie Oy Ltd in Tampere,
the biggest inland city in Scandinavia. Juha and
his family live in suburban Pirkkala,
only 7 kilometers from downtown Tampere, but beside
large hilly forest areas.
Juha has been DXing since 1979.
For the first 10 years his "radioactivity"
was high and focused on Latin America. In the 90's
work and family life replaced the weekly band scanning.
Juha continued to participate in DXpeditions, to
Lapland (6 different locations tested) and especially
to Uusikaupunki on the West coast, catching mainly
UK stations on MW. In his QSL collection you can
find verifications from some 170 countries and 860
summer cottage as a 3-5-year project and historical
readings and studies etc. have minimized DXing.
But Juha's NRD-receiver is ready for use and new
beverage antennas to the new log house QTH are already
in the plans
