I'm listening to my recordings again, and have definitely identified Casablanca on a number of frequencies. :D

Seriously though - what I've listened to so far from around 17:00 to 18:00 UTC has a load of Arabic stations coming and going. The are either mixing with other Arabic stations or with Spanish stations. The big majority of these identifiable are on a bearing of around 202 degrees especially in the later part of this period. But there are one or two slightly more to the east that means it is not reasonable to presume that my reception on 99.9 of PI code 1281 was AOE and not MRC.

I'm convinced though that there are some double hops stations lurking eg from AOE and/or MTN, but I don't hold out much hope of actually identifying one positively.
