How much does one kilowatt weight? What kind of music does meterband play? How thin the antenna gets when it is split into five SDR-receivers? How much weight carrier wave can carry? Which numbers does AM dial? Does bears poop in the forest? These and many more DX-related mysteries will again be solved during the first two weeks of March when Team LURX will revisit the ultimate wilderness on their World Wide Lapland Tour 2014. If any of these questions have bothered your mind, frequent visits to this blogspot site are highly recommended.
What comes to the intriguing title of this DX-adventure; no, they haven´t gone through any surgeries to get their hands shortened so that it would be easier for them to keep their hands in their pockets while sitting and listening to SDR´s. No. At least not yet. Team LURX is this time on the road truly shorthanded – without their irreplaceable center forward … so this time they will definitely be even more lost than usual. Now they have also chosen to use pseudonyms to avoid somewhat embarrassing publicity that these adventures inevitably tend to provide leading to early termination of employments, sudden loss of friends and relatives, frequent and persistent contacts from the health care professionals (those nice young men in their clean white coats) etc.
LEM343 participants are:
In the right corner, the ingenious big cat tamer, pole vault artist and the creator of the heligopter antenna, the one and only … Mr. Valo Piiparinen !!!
Left all alone in the left corner, the master of gee-string-theory, with the smell from hell and the ears of a turtle, hopefully one of a kind … Mr. Marko N. Savunhaju !!!
(Team LURX center forward Mr. Arnold Bragdens – also called as the “Papa Lurx” - had some Arranged Blonds for these weeks and will not be attending …)
Beginning on the 1st of March … Be there!
