AIH40 Day 7 – 21.11.2014

November 22, 2014 By: admin Category: Uncategorized

The last full day in Aihkiniemi. Our plan is to leave around midday tomorrow after band dies to USA. Jormas JHT and JM will be AIH41 arriving later on Saturday. This morning we had quite nice opening to Great Lakes and NY area. At the moment I don’t know exactly how long the opening was but at 0600 it was peaking nicely. Eg. 790 WAYY, 910 WSUI, 930 WBEN (Buffalo NY where they had 6 ft of snow, maybe more power for this reason? WWKB was out one night earlier), 950 WNTD, 970 WDCZ (also Buffalo), 980 WCUB and 980 WITY. Later around 11 UTC usual AK stations came in and I was able to get 3 new ones: 790 KCAM, 870 KSKO and 1110 KAGV. Now our AK-id total is 20. There was also a path to Hawaiji and 940 KKNE and 1570 KUAU were identified. Asian direction we have not checked yet.

The job of the day was to remove a temporary 1000 meter, 210 degrees “Gibraltar-antenna” from the woods. It took over 2 hours but we did it! Antenna was important as we got eg. RNE Melilla! The afternoon was spent at Jounila cottage with much needed sauna and shower. During the evening we checked the files, had some beers and enjoyed about foxfires – the second time this week (and only days with clear skies).

Menu and beer of the day: chicken fillet with potatoes and cream, Mikkeller Beer Geek BreAKfast (Alaskan Edition) (to celebrate 20 AKs).
