All stations listed here were heard at my suburban home in the city of Vantaa, next to the capital Helsinki, with a Super-KAZ antenna or wire antennas of 45 and 70 meters, from late August to December 2004. I spent the first part of the year in the U.S. and stations heard there are listed separately in the Silicon Valley Bandscan 2003-2004. Stations heard in Lapland can be found in the LEM202 DXpedition log.
