Very cool vid. So cool that the BBC did a vid on it, too!

Aikhainiemi and Lemmenjoki are the two places I've read about where the MW DXers go. The guy in Kongsfjord, Norway seems to get a lot of publicity in MW circles, too.

The vid has some great shots of the area. Looks awesome.
An AM radio Boombox DXer.
+ GE SRIII, PR-D5 & TRF on MW.
The usual Realistic culprits on SW (and a Panasonic).
