I heard BBC Solent in Spring 2020 with local closing announcements on these two frequencies. Thanks JM.Radio Relizane 90.8. My first Algerian station. Heard in Central Finland, distance 3450 km. Nice Es opening bringing many Algerian stations. At first they did not believe I heard them using radio, since they are heard normally only in the vicinity. However, later they wrote that maybe wind and sea had helped the signal to reach Finland. Messenger
