Greetings from Jyväskylä. As of Jan-Mikael wrote couple of words, I also write short blogging about my “radioactivities” here in Ylä-Mäyrämäki, Jyväskylä. Well yeah! Spring is coming! Nice and warm (+4° C) weather here. Hmmm could I say warm? Maybe something like tolerable than when we have hard frost or as usual temperatures this time of year. Spring is coming quite early. Now that the FM has been quiet for distant signals, I’ve had time to concentrate on “traditional waves”, mainly on short waves. My main receivers for traditional DXing are: Good old Yaesu FRG-7700 with FRT-7700, Sangean ATS-909x and Tecsun BCL-3000. Antennas: BOG and home made magnetic loop. My QTH is near power line so it gives challenges to catch signals especially from medium waves. Well even QTH is quite poor for traditional DXing, proper antenna grounding gives at least some results. Mainly I just collect stations which for one reason or another left without listening to over the years.
