Big L - re-appeared on 1395 kHz AM this afternoon, with a good signal from the transmitter site at Trintelhaven in the Netherlands. It's off-air from 1900-2200 BST during Albania's agreed use of the channel. There are some photos of the transmitter site on the Big L Forum. Sure enough they signed back on with London Calling at 2200 BST - good signal.
