Really? I was going to say Turkey.

Ah yes, weak Spanish on 90.4. Wait ... it's gone.

The scan log for the south facing aerial gave PI codes of 8201 (POR Antena 1) at 1208 BST and E2EE at 1237 BST - so looks like there was SpE about at a low level for up to an hour.

I got that feeling on the morning of the 15th - a few hours later there was a significant opening to the east of me. So let's hope there are a couple more openings to come.
