Mr. Persons:  In the middle of the night, your local time, on November 15th, I listened to my AM-receiver live in northern Sweden trying to catch AM-stations from your side of the Atlantic .

On 1270 kHz I found WWWI and heard station-ID: "... WWWI AM Baxter 1270 AM.  Date and time for my reception: October 15th 2019 at 11 pm MDT.

The reception-conditions for AM-signals were not the very best this night, and there were several other stations on 1270,  but it was really thrilling beeing able to hear WWWI  for the frist time over a distance of 4300 miles.

This reception was made in Parkalompolo, ( https://goo.gl/maps/Sz4gwJ5L6JA2 ) Parkalompolo is a small village in the ”middle of nowhere”,  deep in the Woods in northern Sweden, north of the Arctic Circle.  It is 20 miles to the nearest shop but it is a perfect place for us listening to weak distant AM stations. We have 6 long wire-antennas ( 800-1100 meters each) in different directions in the woods.

 

Here you can find some photos from our DX-Camp in Parkalompolo  https://app.box.com/s/pyes4xs6mac5cem1180u8o2n4du5l8hc

 

My receiver: Perseus SDR-receiver with an 900 meters long-wire antenna pointing towards central north America.


I am 72 years old and I live with my wife in a small town called Nödinge to the north of Gothenburg.  We have three children and four grandchildren living not far from us.  I have a strange hobby, listening to distant radio-stations from around the world (DX-ing).  I also like to ride my Honda MC and walking in the woods close to our house.

 Best Regards from Parkalompolo in northern Sweden.

Alf Persson
