The land Islands or land is an autonomous, demilitarized, monolingually Swedish-speaking region of Finland with a population of about 28 000. land is an archipelago consisting of more than 6 700 islands and lies at the entrance to the Gulf of Bothnia in the Baltic Sea.

Latest operation: 22 - 27.4.2017 from Ecker, land Islands (grid: JP90sf).
Total of ~800 QSOs. Relatively low score due to focusing on5 MHz operation using JT-9 and JT-65 modes.
About 100 of QSOs on 5 MHz CW. The rest of the QSOs on 3.5 - 14 MHz CW.
Update: All QSOs are now uploaded to LotW. If you think you worked me, but can't find a match
in LotW, please let me know. I will try to sort out possible discrepancies.
I will also confirm all QSOs with traditional QSL, via bureau (to OH3KAV) or direct.
