Mr. 'Where do we go next?'

Mr. 'Where do we go next?'zoomHis fans believe (and even his critics admit) that he is the greatest DXpeditioner of the last fifty years. Martti has indeed helped the DX community - like nobody else - to a number of "new ones". His trademark is the unique combination of ham-spirit, professional management and a quest for perfection. You will never hear him, and be it from the remotest place, with a weak signal. But, above all, he has introduced a new quality to DX-ing: the human and the humanitarian aspects. (Listen to his speech at Ham Radio 2013, to learn more about that philosophy.) Unlike so many other big guns you will find Martti not only from a DX spot - he is a regular contact on the bands and participates to many international contests. - Are you interested in his personal biography? Listen to an interview, exclusively given to our Documentary Archive, and browse through huis family photo album.
