A listing of what was heard by a group of foreign DX'ers and FK in Hune in
January this year appeared in SWN no. 3 1996 page 22. In this list WWL did
NOT appear. So its rather awkward you now claim to have heard the
But congrats if you did. Why not travel to northern Scandinavia instead -
then you can hear even more. When your're in Northern Finland you're
almost there. 
I am - however - not too interested in what is being heard on these
DXpeditions. It's really no big deal. If you want to hear Cuba on medium
wave go to Jamaica. Fair enough. I'd love to go to Cuba and listen to the
radio there - but don't call it DXing - and by all means do not send
reception reports to the stations you're hearing. 
To "DX" is to listen to distant radiostations from your home. To "DX" is -
to the best of my opinion - not to travel more or less close to a given
station and then listen to it. So if you want to hear WWL or other trans
atlantic stations why not try to catch them in Germany.
