LA9HW DX-Pedition; Oslo, Norway

I want to extend a special thanks to Jan Almedal (LA9HW) for his hospitality and allowing me (K3LP - David) the opportunity to operate from home outside of Oslo, Norway. While on a business trip in Norway,  I met Jan who picked me up at our hotel and drove me to his home QTH. That evening, he prepared a wonderful dinner, we talked about business, travel and radio stuff, and then I headed for the radio room to make a few QSOs. If you need to get in touch with Jan, here is his information:

I ice skated in downtown Oslo and also visited Lillehammer. Lillehammer is a picturesque town in the Lagen River valley, close to Lake Mjøsa and the mountainous Oppland region in southeastern Norway. It is the commercial and administrative center of Oppland and a popular tourist resort year round. Lillehammer has excellent access to skiing and outdoor sports at the nearby lakes and mountains. There is some industry associated with the processing of timber from local forests. Apart from the wide range of sports facilities, Lillehammer is home to the Maihaugen Open Air Museum, a re-siting of more than 130 historical buildings, with exhibits of local history and culture. There is also an art gallery, the Malerisamling. The author Brørnstjerne Bjørnson, winner of the 1903 Nobel Prize for literature, lived nearby. In 1994 Lillehammer, 137 km (85 mi) north of Oslo, hosted the Winter Olympics. The town won widespread praise for its organization of the games, as most events were within walking distance of the town center and the Olympic village. Population (1998) 24,400.

Here are so photos from the Oslo, Norway trip:
