Make sure you listen on the correct GRI's, some tables still list the
long abandoned 3-digit USCG chains, rather than the 4-digit NELS chains:

	Eiði, GRI=9007
	Lessay, GRI=6731
	Sylt, GRI=7499
	Værlandet, GRI=7001

For what it's worth, I have never been able to more than barely detect
the 9960 chain from here in Denmark, and that was only after a major
DSP exercise...
