First opening 21.5.2011: France, Germany, Balkan

This season's first opening was very good, on Saturday, mainly to France. In the first place I hunt new stations for me, or never-heard-before-in Finland ( + = in the log). That makes this more interesting, to have challencies.
The interesting point of this day was that I idenfied 6 different French private stations on 88.8 !!! (Of course dozens of TDF-Radio France transmitters were audible around the band and I identified many Virgin, NRJ, Nostalgie etc. networks with no local content).
