100.9 is not SER it's Radio Galega with full RDS 1280 km I was wondering if Spain might come by earlier and it has.

Nope. Not reaching here at all. France is up a bit but nothing exciting.
Good DX.

Thanks Zach it was a good opening despite it only lasting about two hours before it faded out.

Just going through my recordings and noticed RNE Radio Nacional 89.5 was on the wrong aerial the Antiference FM 3 pointing to Ireland 90 degrees to Spain :lol:
