Stations logged by Mika Mäkeläinen in 2001


Stations heard at any other location outside the LEM158 DXpedition are listed here. The following DXing locations have been used:

  • July 22-28th: a summer cottage in Punkaharju in Eastern Finland with a 200-meter-long wire to south (180 degrees) and a 400-meter-long wire west (260 degrees). Unfortunately AM conditions were very poor.

  • August 23-25th: Långåminne (DXpedition LÅ218 with Jim Solatie) on the western coast of Finland near the town of Vaasa (map), with a 1000-meter-long wire at 285 degrees (rather useless on these conditions), another 1000-meter-long wire at 255 degrees (good for UK stations), a 700-meter-long wire at 235 degrees and a 400-meter-long wire pointing south at 180 degrees.

  • at all other times: my suburban home in the city of Vantaa

1395 24.8. 1752 Business Nieuws R, Mastwijk
1602 5.7. 2222 Fäxradion (WFÄX R), Färila, with just 55 watts of power. Their new vertical antenna construction seems to be much better than last year, when I didn't manage to hear this station at all. This first test transmission was in English. A week-long operation during the annual community fest Färilaveckan.
6235 18.3. *1858- R Studio Nevskaya Volna (Dom Radio Gardarika), St. Petersburg. This is of course no rarity here, coming from so close with excellent signal, but it was just interesting to listen to private commercial programming on shortwaves. Ads for Metro Club.

774 24.3. 0100 ERTU Batra, programming from Cairo. This is the dominant here, reported once again, as they don't have the habit of verifying reports.
1161 31.3. 2102 ERTU Tanta, local programming

1566 27.7. -2002* A clandestine station from Kuwait to Iraq, "Idha'at il-wadi al-Rafidain", probably the same transmitter which is used for "Al-Mustaqbal" transmission on 1575 kHz later in the evening.
