You will need the Monkey's Audio compression tool to decompress the files, available here: http://www.monkeysaudio.com/

Note: Mediafire sometimes throws up pop-up ads. These are harmless. Just close them.

Good DX!

I remember that opening very well. I won't attempt to access the posted files - download speed is only 5 Mbps

If you have files that span the the period 0140 - 0145 UTC - look for reception of the Faroe Isles. I got full RDS on 89.9, 92.8, and also 94.3 MHz. Finland Norway Sweden Island and Wales all received.

I missed the opening on 1.1.16 but I have plenty of recordings from the 16.6.17 opening that Tim mentions. The band was open for much of the day, and I had Moscow on 87.9 (with PI code) and 88.7 towards the end of that day's activity.
Good DX.
