Portugal WSPR

Using WSPR from our apartment in Alvor, Portugal IM57QD, I was received by 69 stations in 7 days.
Most of the time I was using 14MHz. The antenna was somewhere between 5 and 10 metres of wire run along the curtain rails, fed through a "long wire balun".
Because of the S9 noise on all bands it wasn't possible to receive much but I was picking up a few stations, including those in the UK. I had no internet access to upload the spots in real time.
The apartment was on the first floor and faced north east.
