Tue 9.6.2015: Weak Balkan, Greece, better South France - MOROCCO, TUNISIA-locals with RDS!

Tuesday morning was promising starting at 06.30utc with Balkan and Greek-signals. Quite sharp and weak but gave some ids. Some new stations from Macedonia, like Life Radio 89.1 and Radio Vati 88.4 MHz.

Strong South France started around 08.00utc for almost an hour, up over 100 MHz. Strongest signals so far. Same path gave the longest skip as Morocco, MFM 92.2 MHz with RDS!!

Again Italy up after 08.50utc to Rome-area and later other parts strongly for 20 minutes - and at the same time TUNISIA, Radio Zitouna, 88.0 MHz with RDS.
In the afternoon around 13utc The Best TUNISIA-opening ever! Several local stations were up: Shems FM 88.7 with RDS and audio-id / Radio Safra FM 89.0, Jawhara FM 89.4 and RTT Radio Culture 89.5. The last 3 were PI-code identifications.

Here below printscreen of Otso's 4x XDR-set on the run:. Radio Zitouna RDS is visible on the left up corner  and Italian RTL 102.5 with RDS at the same moment on 92.4 MHz on XDR3. CLICK THE PHOTOS!

Here below are part of Otso's Es-skips mapped from this morning from Utö. Middle-Italy, and Tunisia on the same line via douple-hop-skip.

It is interesting how the cloud is not in the middle of the skip, but "the Finnish end" is longer. Perhaps Utö gains from the sea effect and gets few extra hundred kilometres from there? 73 de TIK

Yes, that is possible, especially when the signals are weak.
The sea-horizont opens here very close to atennas.
