Stations logged by Mika Mäkeläinen in 2002

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

  • March 27-29, 2002: Långåminne (DXpedition LÅ227 with Jim Solatie) on the western coast of Finland near the town of Vaasa, 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 233 degrees and a 400-meter-long wire pointing south at 200 degrees.

  • July 6-13, 2002: Gottby, Jomala, Åland Islands, during a family vacation at a summer cottage with Jim Solatie and his family. Some DXing of UK and Latin American stations during the nights, with a 200-meter wire pointing southwest and 150 meters north.
  • December 30-31, 2002: Långåminne, a solo mini-DXpedition LÅ237, for 32 hours in freezing -27 degree weather, antennas as on LÅ227
  • at all other times: my suburban home in the city of Vantaa, next to the capital Helsinki, with wire antennas of 45 and 70 meters, and during the winter also a K9AY loop.
