Comments from Jukka OH8MSM: Request - pse update your needs on MakeMoreMilesonVHF -pages to Most Wanted -section. It helps in planning peditions and where to go next. On ped priority is hams being on list (and hams who conducted dxpeditions in the past); of course all the others will be worked as well. My shoulder was just operated; so no peds in August and next peditions I work alone which means little less qrv time because of sleeping hours. You can send requests/comments jukkakoltta at gmail.com and sms +358405897370 - pse simple english
