Athens Meteo Fax noted as active
« on: January 11, 2021, 0224 UTC »
Saw a log of them from the other day - heard 0845-1145z on 8106.9kHz.  I believe the reporter was in Spain.  Close by, yes, but Athens was believed to have gone the way of Denmark, Cape Naval South Africa, etc.  So, apparently they are BXing.
Heads up,
FPE
Near Chicago, IL USA.  Drake R8, Ten-Tec RX340, JRC NRD545, Watkins Johnson HF-1000, Wellbrook loop at 28', 40m inverted vee.  Please QSL to fpeconsultant@aol.com thanks.

Though they are basically in your backyard, that's a confirmation that they are absolutely active.
Thx for the heads up.
