was in the Holy Land to deliver a lecture on the Polish 2nd Corps at
Birzeit University
I stayed in Ramallah for the 1st night and made extensive notes
but then as a surprise I was moved to Jerusalem for my final night by
the Polish Consul apparently they always do this to give their guests
chance to sightsee, anyway in my hurried packing I left my notes in

tons of Jerusalem tropo logs to type up but I just did a memory dump
of the Pira P175 RDS analyser so I can reuse it for London pirates
next week


first thing, Radio all for peace on 107.2 from Ramallah is gone, the
channel was totally free and the Gaza relay of Ajyal FM was audible
along with an unlisted Israeli unid on 107.1

The Polish Embassy's driver said it had been gone for some time (it
used to relay Polish radio)

all these logged/stored in Ramallah

Excellent info there Tim. Thanks for this. Maybe some of us will be lucky enough to receive some of the stations on your list in the 2017 Sporadic E season.

that reminds me, I would recognise the Israeli time pips and would be happy to listen to a short mp3 of anyones reception

95.5 seems to be most powerful Israeli stn, it reached out furthest into the Med.
