AIH142 DXpedition in Lapland: A steady flow U.S. stations until a major solar eruption

Mika with coax in a tunnelOur traditional October DX trip (AIH142) focused squarely on North American stations. We had a couple of nice openings, and reception improved gradually until October 28th. Just as we expected to enjoy daytimer-filled final days of the month, a large solar eruption silenced the AM band for the remaining days. Apart from DXing, a definite highlight was an excursion to the Arctic Ocean coast, where we enjoyed the hospitality of our Norwegian DX friends over a fabulous king crab dinner.

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.

Using Carrier Sleuth to Find the Fine Details of DX

Screenshot of changing carrier frequenciesAs technology advances, making highly accurate measurements of the carrier frequencies of received radio stations is becoming more widespread, especially among medium wave DXers. A few programs can deliver such details by playing back SDR files. One of those is Carrier Sleuth, and Nick Hall-Patch looks at output waterfalls from this program, while addressing how they can aid the DXer in hearing new stations. He then goes on to describe how to generate these outputs, as well as the non-visual data that is available from them.

How to Identify Chinese Radio Stations

China National Radio logoChina is one of the few countries increasing its presence on the medium wave (AM) radio dial, as DXers have been able to observe. Identifying Chinese stations can however be tricky if you don't understand the language. With this guide you will learn how to identify Chinese stations based on just a few keywords and phrases. Don't let the language barrier intimidate you, because DXing Chinese stations can be extremely exciting and rewarding.
