Later on this morning, Algeria was received. Just before that I think maybe there was Greece on 87.6 but it was very brief. Es were mostly teasing & patchy from the same usual areas so nothing special.

TRT Nagme was in about 30 mins on and off so I have uploaded a video and cut bits out when I was looking for other stuff you may notice lack FM noise when signal fades this due to a low level blank carrier I have had on 87.5 for months.

On the Radio Blackman video you will hear a bloke shouting.

I missed some of yesterday's opening but managed to catch the more interesting part. I have a 9-minute plus recording of Damla FM on 87.5 and I also logged what was very likely IBB Trafik Radyosu on 87.7. Some central European and Balkan signals were also recorded. The opening dropped out after the Turkish signals had gone. This often seems to be the case in that the exotics will appear as the opening is on its way out.
Good DX.

Yesterdays opening was the weirdest I have experienced Started with Laikos 87.6 very weak matched that via web and tuned to 87.5 and heard Arabic music and thought probably Libya that faded out then bit's of Balkans came in weak again at first then a bit stronger.
It was while I was looking up the band for stuff I saw 3208 on the vertical ant so checked it out and it was TRT Nagme and Radio Blackman both in and out for over 30 mins but not much else with it at that time.

TRT Nagme/Radio Blackman came in best on vertical the horizontals was quite noisy so I wonder if that TX is vertical doesn't say on FM list but I do find a lot of TXs come better on vertical.
I do live in overload country here so I do find odd things happening that's the reason for using Sony tuners they work I tried a Kenwood KT 60640 but that succumbed to the overload stations appearing where they shouldn't be whether a good SDR would work here well the jury is out on that one.
