Excellent reception in Catania, Sicily.  A little online research showed this to be broadcast from Sigonella (Sicily) Naval Base.  While spinning the AM & FM dial, the only English broadcast I found.  Perhaps the first time I have heard AFN in 40 years, I remember when they did a live baseball game nightly.

I have since learned that mere hours after I posted the above, and six miles from me at the time, Naval Air Base Sigonella was involved/supported the Joint Air Strike on Syria.  I wonder if Captain Fantastic announced the launch as his show concluded.
