Thanks to a work tour in Ivalo, Northern Finland over the weekend I could
experience for the first time in my life the astonishing propagation
conditions of the region. Unfortunately it was not a dx-pedition; I took
with me my Lowe 150 and a 20 mt wire I streched to the trees in front of my
hotel window. And here's what happened...


Incredible signals from Pacific Canada and US West Coast in the morning,
09,00-11,30 UTC (very little at night from East coast and Lakes)
