AIH85 DXpedition in Lapland: AM stations from Australia, Japan and Philippines heard

Mika on DXpedition AIH85The 85th DXpedition to Aihkiniemi was the 10th time that I was fortunate to enjoy this Arctic AM DXing paradise. I was hoping to hear loads of Australian AM stations, and I did hear a few nice ones from Down Under, but even better catches were the many Philippine and Japanese stations that I heard around 2000-2100 UTC.
