    You're not the only one that hasn't heard about the Aland
    Islands. Ideologically we are connected to Sweden but in 1921 the
    'League of Nations' (now UN) decided that the Aland Islands should
    be a self-governing part of Finland and though Finland is a
    bilingual country, the official (only) language here is swedish.

    I wonder how many would would say the've never heard of Market Reef? Seems like hams know all the "out of the way" and unknown places.

    GM Al,

    Seems like hams know all the "out of the way" and unknown places.

    The reason Market Reef got its 'separate' country status is that the
    lighthouse there (as well as the reef) are governed by Finland and the
    ¸land Islands separates OJ0 from the main land.

    I have participated in four DXpeditions to Market Reef, all of them in
    the first week of august for the Perseids meteor shower.
