Stations logged by Mika Mäkeläinen in 2003

All stations listed here were heard at 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. No DXpeditions this year. The stations were heard from the start of the year until the beginning of August, when I moved to the U.S. Stations heard there are listed separately in the Silicon Valley Bandscan 2003-2004.
