E Skip 21/08/18

Heard Arabic on 87.6 @ around 0910 hrs for a couple of minutes. No ID or RDS. Nothing else since then, but it will be a challenge for Es since UK tropo is enhanced here with BBC relays doing well.

Also Italy on a totally different heading. Strong on 8.9 at 1021-1036 UTC - pi code 5211. I'm unable to identify the location for sure but it is most likely to be San Giovanni Gemini / Monte Cammarata which is 1832 km on a bearing of 142 deg - as it was strong on the South facing aerial

5211 should correspond to Radio 105.
