AIH163 DXpedition in Lapland: BBC World Service reporting on DXing taken to the extreme

BBC News logoDuring Christmas 2022 DXing received unprecedented publicity on the BBC. Millions of people around the world are seeing and reading reports about the hobby. The journalist behind all this is Erika Benke, who visited Aihkiniemi in late November during DXpedition AIH163. We checked antennas in crispy -20 degree weather and Erika got to learn about the challenges of identifying remote AM radio stations. Solar activity remained rather high, but at least some North American stations were heard daily.

A second building added to the Aihkiniemi DX base in 2020

Aihkiniemi cabinsImagine spending a week in the middle of nowhere with 14 Beverage antennas — each roughly a kilometer in length and capable of catching hundreds of rare stations. It's possible because we've made our famous DXpedition base in Aihkiniemi, Finland available for rent to other DXers. The facilities have greatly improved in 2020. Going on a first class DXpedition has never been this easy.

AIH159 DXpedition in Lapland: A trip to Norway, stunning aurora and random AM catches

Aurora borealis on AIH159Being able to take a break from war reporting was the most important benefit of the 159th DXpedition to Aihkiniemi in Lapland. Conditions were average and pretty stable, but there were no historic openings. We were able to find a few new stations mostly from the US, Mexico, China and Spain. Additionally, seeing rare reddish northern lights, getting some media attention and taking a road trip to meet Norwegian DXers in Kongsfjord were the highlights of AIH159.
