MW and FM radio reception and DXing in St. Petersburg, Russia; Vilnius, Lithuania; Helsinki, Finland; and Stockholm, Sweden, and in the midst (middle) of the Baltic Sea on a Silja-Line (MV Symphony) Ferry going to Sweden from Finland, Sept 2009:
The Best of Hawaii Mediumwave/AM-broadcast-band DX, and many other places: Canada (4 provinces in the west), and the northern California Coast, using Beverage antennas:
FM and TV DX (long-distance reception) (via sporadic-E skip and meteor-scatter) (2000 to 2009)
Cruising the remote back roads of America's beautiful Great Basin (Basin and Range Province) of central Nevada - I have been exploring Nevada back roads since 1983 - this photo is taken heading westbound on Nevada state route 844 toward Gabbs, NV, in the Paradise Range amongst Pinyon Pines on the 18th of August, 2010 - N6NKS.
The Great Space Center - Eastern Sierra DX spot in DM06.
I got stuck for 6 hours in sand - wedged on berm that my car rested upon its skid-plates. I dug for 5 hours, and by mid-afternoon on 12 June 2010, a kind Ranger from DVNP to the west, (7 miles / 12 km) outside his jurisdiction - towed me out of the sand within 30 seconds! Thanks to the fine hams on 7.248 MHz I spoke to (CARS and WestCARS nets - 1100 to 1300 PT), giving them my GPS coords., and that kind Ranger, I went on my way. I was in DM17 for VHF-UHF QSO-Party. 6m opened up nicely 11-12 June, 2010. N6NKS
N6NKS Field-Day site (DM17) - Lee Flat (Inyo Co. CA) - June 2009 - fabulous 6 meter conditions three days there with Kenwood TS-570S.
Cooler than last year at Lee Flat, this eastern Sierra site (DM06) was my June 2010 Field-Day site with Kenwood TS-480SAT. Again, fine 6m conditions prevailed.

In Glendalough, Ireland (Saint Kevin's Kitchen), May 1992 - a wonderful place to DX the LW and MW broadcast-bands. Also in Donegal in early May 1996, I could hear a few North American MW stations on small loop antenna and Sony portable receiver.

Awesome Manitoba VLF Sounds - Aug. 96
Marin County, CA Fog - July 1991 - so lovely and peaceful
St. Petersburg, Russia - a fascinating place to DX LW, MW - Saudi Arabia could be heard in hotel room on 1512 and 1521 kHz in St. Petersburg with just a loopstick antenna facing southward - unfortunately, one can't hear long-haul MW-BCB DX in the overcrowded North American MW dial at all - not like that in Russia!
Point Reye's Primordial Rainforest - I spent a misty, full-moonlight night in July 2008 deep within the forest - DXing all of my desert-HF radio-beacons.

Local Sierra Nevada Canyon hiking place (Tuttle Canyon Ashram).
At this 1999-2001 tech. job, they made me have to undig ATV's and other stuff out of the Owens Lakebed mud in the wintertime. I was standing upon hard-pan clay under the quicksand.
