Thursday, 13th June: Early morning Italy, Turkey and strong Russia

The crew did sleep only a few hours after yesterday evening's push. Early morning check by JJS woke up the crew at 02.45 utc to Italy-opening. Stations from North Italy, but not big signals.
Later during the morning we've had short peaks to Bulgaria and Turkey (Istanbul).

Around midday local time there were very srong signals from Russia around Togliatti, Samara and Syzran cities. About 20 new stations (=never heard before) were identified on CCIR-band.

Short UK-opening with BBCs around the lower band, highest was The Wave 96.4. Also a few STL-links on 52.75 MHz (New Style Radio from Birmingham and islamic station on the same channel)

Nothing observed unfortunately. Expectations were at very high level...

It seems conditions might continue several days in a row.

The longest skip belongs now to Jukka (JJS): RFM, Monchique/Fóia-tx, South Portugal, 104.9 MHz and from the same tower Radio Renascensa 98.6 MHz. Both 10 kW. Distance 3277 km.
