In reply to OE5EEP:
Unfortunately the noise level at the Stockholm QTH was terrible, and even in other parts of the city I could not work anything. I could not even work the FM satellites from Stockholm. A Swedish friend thinks all of the new noise is due to new airconditioning units being installed as well as a proliferation of plasma TV sets.
Finally today I visited the SSA club station SK0TM and chased 3 summits. SK0TM has a remote receiver far away in the archipeligo as well as nice beam somewhat away from downtown and that made all the difference.
Tonight I am on my way to Gotland Island, EU-020 where I know the noise level is much better. I will have the Alexloop always ready to go in the car as well as the arrow antenna for the FM birds.
