17.6.2013 – double hops!

In the early evening MUF maps looked good, and soon there were first fading signals from the penisola of Krim (Ukrainian coast). Probably the best skip went however to the Black Sea. Also Bulgarian and Romanian coast stations were noticed. After first hour I got Turkish on earphones – also Quran recitation, which in my mind was probably TRT. Suddenly Kiss FM Cyprus IDed on 89.0! They have 3 transmitters on this frequency, 3088-3119km, so the 3000 km is reached without any doubt. In that moment I finally realized that these weak Turkish signals could be Arabic aswell! Odesa (the first skip) came strongly, but luckily they don´t use many frequencies under 100 MHz, so there was enough space for second hop from Cyprus, Lebanon, Israel and maybe also Syria, or Egypt, who knows. Please note, that there are many doubts in the log and all the italic stations are only suspected. Your help with unidentified and tentative stations would be highly appreciated, audio can be heard by clicking the station name! After these golden 30 minutes the first clouds moved suddenly towards west, the band was full of Romanian and the double hop was no more possible. Many stations from Cyprus were heard in Southern and Central Finland and also few from other Eastern mediterranean countries.
