LEM112 DXpedition Equipment
November 21-29, 1997

Below you can see Jarmo's NRD-535D in action, ready for KTWG Guam on 801 kHz. JRC NRD-535D has proven to be an excellent receiver, and is therefore used by the vast majority of DXers in Lemmenjoki. In fact, most listeners use two receivers simultaneously, the other receiver usually borrowed from a fellow DXer. On this LEM112 DXpedition we both used two pieces of JRC NRD-535D receivers with amplifiers and antenna tuners. Both had a switchboard designed by Roland Sandberg to select the antennae, and if necessary, to split a particular antenna between the two receivers.

The Lemmenjoki QTH is equipped with 16 beverage or longwire antennae, 8 for both listeners. Each antenna is roughly 0.8 - 1 kilometer (0.5 - 0.6 miles) in length. Because of the reindeer, antennae need to be 3-4 meters above the ground. When trees are not available, poles have been erected. Both listeners have antennae directed at the following areas:

- Southern part of South America (Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, Chile) and Spain
- Northern part of South America (Venezuela, Columbia, Ecuador), the Caribbean and the United Kingdom
- Eastern Coast of North America and Central America
- Midwest
- Rocky Mountains
- West Coast of North America
- North (Alaska, Hawaii)
- Far East (Japan, Koreas, China, Taiwan, the Philippines)
