AIH76 DXpedition in Lapland: AM stations from Fiji, Micronesia and Tuvalu heard

Northern lights in LaplandSouth Pacific island music was the soundtrack of the 76th DXpedition to Aihkiniemi. Hawaiian stations were heard almost daily, AM catches from New Zealand were netted on several days, and a few rare stations from other islands were logged as well, Radio Tuvalu (621 kHz) and V6AH from Micronesia (1449 kHz) being the highlights. Conditions to North America were not quite as good as low solar activity would have suggested.
