Lithuania?

Valencia possibly )
SER has a bunch of synchros on this channel in Spain and the Canary Islands. Google "EMWG" and use the Europe-Africa Medium Wave list you find. Sometimes you get lucky and catch a local ID such as "Radio Rioja" I heard a year or two ago.

1179 khz – Unidentified 20:17 UT/1 Unknown language (News clips in English)
In Sweden's absence, Romania has been heard quite a bit here in eastern MA mixing with the above-mentioned SER synchro's. There is also Greece. I suppose just about any station could have sound-bites in English during a newscast about a speech by a UK, US, Canadian, Australian, etc. political or business leader.

1341 khz – Unidentified 19:45 UT/1 Spanish talk over Ulster
Canary Islands listed, and heard a few times on local coastal DXpeditions when Northern Ireland and Hungary ease up.

1566 khz – Unidentified Trace Audio most of session
County Sound UK most often noted here when TWR Benin is off. There is also a low power BBC UK outlet, heard once here. I've only had India twice locally (Drake R8A, Rowley salt-marsh) but - even on an ultralight - you have a much better chance than I with a shorter path farther from the polar region and much less slop from NYC 1560 and Montreal 1570.

Hello To All

Braving the elements, the following were logged between 19:45 – 20:45 UTC using the SRF-M37V barefoot
