Skegness Log: 02-05-15 (FM)

Band 2 Sporadic E:
 88.1 1222 ALG Radio Batna, Metlili (5) OM and YL, as web  2033km
 91.2 1225 ALG Radio Biskra, Metlili (5) Shouting OM, as web  2033km

A morning of teasing Es.

Italy was heard briefly, then Algeria and Spain, but the Spanish reception may have been due to a long meteor burst. There was a Scandinavian Es station on 87.9 around late morning due to a second Es cloud. Finland was receiving Tacolneston at the time.

Good DX!
