Very nice!

Greece is still on my "to catch" list, but they have a limited transmission schedule.

Yes, 4481 and 8105 kHz at local noon; the frequencies are suitable for local coverage only. Your only option would be some local WebSDR receiver.

Perhaps a vertical at the dx rx end would catch some of the 8MHz fax?
