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.
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.
