AIH88 DXpedition in Lapland: Best ever opening to New Zealand

Mika on DXpedition AIH85Our DXpedition to Aihkiniemi was number 88 in the history of this DX cabin. This is a lucky number in China, and I'm inclined to agree: We got the best ever opening to New Zealand, logging dozens of rare stations from there. Reception of North American stations was also good almost all the time. Despite low solar activity, the aurora borealis was a performance to die for.

It's possible because we're making our famous DXpedition base in Aihkiniemi, Finland available for rent to other DXers. Going on a first class DXpedition has never been this easy.
