Signal was surprisingly good in whole Scandinavia on 11092.5 kHz (USB-modulation, 1 kW).
I sent e-mail to the station of my reception and it was also read on the air very quickly. They had e-mails from all over Europe, even live phonecallings.
I managed to record the part where my e-mail is mentioned (mp3): "e-mail. Hello from Naantali, SW Finland, North Europe. Surprisingly good signal here in southwest Finland ..."
They do not reply e-mails and I will mail written report to get Double Anniversary QSL (founded 40y ago, 10y on SW)!
(No pirate listening this weekend)

Also a short visit to Galway Bay FM, Galway, in westcoast of Ireland (95.8 MHz, www) on Friday. Everybody was buzy at the station because of outside auction-broadcast from city centre.
On Saturday evening I was also lucky to visit pirate Energy Power AM, Dublin!
These guys really have transmitters and knowledge! Many FM-transmitters was all around. Big surprise was ex-Century Radio 1143 kHz 1 kW-transmitter (Waiting to have a good home!). In the outside cottage there were real classic tx: WKLR's 20 years old 400 W transmitter!! WKLR (West Cork Local Radio, Bandon, www) used this mid 80's on 1503 kHz. This crystal was still on it's place!
Energy Power was on the air on MW on Saturday just because my visit. Nice surprise! Click the photo>>>

The most interesting catch for me was Radio Kalokardos from Halkida, about 60 km North from Athens, Greece. Also Radio Hristos (unknown location) was new for me.
I have sent sms-messages to two these stations but I have nothing back. Unfortunately they do not understand English. Radio Delta, Radio Anatolia (on the air every evening from 20.00 - 02.00 Greek time) and Radio Thesalos I have heard before 1-2 years ago.
See the corrections on loggings below.
Here is a map of Greek pirates (not all) which I have identified!
