REU DSC logs from northern North-Central-Finland

Raimo Karjalainen
 

Greetings, now for a long time I can spend a long weekend in another QTH, in the countryside, where I have the opportunity to listen to radio stations in slightly different conditions than at home in QTH in Central Finland. I am now in the countryside, north-central Finland, in the municipality of Siikalatva about 60 kilometers south of the City of Oulu.

In the winter, I can build long wire antennas here, 500 meters long for cereal fields. But now, with the advent of spring, the fields are out of use until the fall, that is, the use of the radio enthusiast. Currently, there is only one wire antenna about 50 meters long, facing south.

I am about 300 kilometers north of here at home, and more to the north rise and fall times of the sun are different from those in the south. The sun sets at 2000 UTC and rises to 0030 UTC, the length of the day here is 19 and a half hours. The home in QTH is about an hour and a half longer than an hour. Due to the short darkness, really only twilight, receiving at low frequencies is more challenging than in the south.

Down here is my log from here "North," QTH Siikalatva.
