UK RDS - I've just uploaded a table listing UK Commercial Stations by frequency with their RDS and PI codes. It's 116k so can take a minute or so to download by modem. If you have any corrections, please me. A BBC local radio table will follow shortly (I hope!). (Mark Hattam)

Sporadic E - Nothing heard via E's until 1700 this afternoon, when I got reports of Arabic and Portugal at the bottom end of the band. Drove home at 2010 listening to RDP Antena 1 on 87.9. Then had 30 minutes of listening before conditions died. Lots of Lisbon stations!
