Weak in Italy now at 2012 UTC. Occasional QRM. SINPO 24422.  :(

Signal has improved at 2032 UTC but still not great.

I always seem to receive R Zeppelin, Greece, a few S points weaker than you Ray... so freq and signal strengths seem to point towards R Zeppelin, so far.

So, is this Zepellin or Harmony and are they operated by the same person(s)?
Is there an email address for Zepellin?

I doubt it is Harmony, as far as I know they only have ONE TX antenna and it is transmitting on 6374 khz at this moment in time

Absolutely not ! Harmony seems to be from Ireland (or relayed there),
Zeppelin is from Greece, and there is an e-mail, a simple one, I will be back,
zeppelinradiosw@yahoo.com

Zeppelin has different moods, tonight this is only one.

2045 now some Greek music, but not of the 'tourist' kind.

I get that level only after tuning an antenna from the shack, all the system (doublet, open line and ATU) is tuned.

Still heard here via Twente SDR but signal weakening.  Wish they could be heard here via
"regular" radios...
