Still Do AM Radio DXing?

When I worked at WOKO in Albany (WDDY these days, with several call changes
in between), we would get QSL cards from the Scandanavian countries all
winter long.  We had a 5kW nighttime DA that sent most of the power a little
east of north - maybe 20 or 30 degrees.  It wasn't a true polar path, but it
was right up the great circle route to that part of the world.

Maybe the hobby has always been so alive there because of the long winter
