I was alerted to the possibility by the new feature in FMList. This indicated a possible UK/Spanish path when someone logged Central France/ to Spain FM-DX. I managed to pick up a couple of stations from Spain and three stations from Casablance from my recording. It was a shame that for the earlier part of the opening I had the wrong aerial plugged in!
