Do you have the UK announcement ? I got notification of Lessay,
Soustons, and the control station at Brest, but not for Sylt or
Anthorn.

The UK is (supposedly) supportive of eLORAN, and I thought Anthorn 
(along with some extra stations on the south coast) were indeed
transmitting eLORAN.

With eLORAN being backwardly compatible, I was assuming/hoping at
lease Anthorn would keep my Austron's busy :)
