I'm pretty sure it was Anthorn.
It was showing as the Master and Y stations, and the individual signal  
levels as indicated on an FS700 were within 1dB, which would seem a reasonable  
tolerance on equal signal levels given that the FS700 only reports to  the 
nearest 1dB anyway:-)
Still just showing Anthorn's "own" signal for now but I'll check again  
during working hours tomorrow.
Although I've seen it claimed otherwise I never found anything to  suggest 
Anthorn would be closing down with the other stations anyway so  wasn't 
surprised when it didn't.
I hadn't considered this latest scenario but it does make sense if  they 
intend to keep going for now.

The  Brits are pretty good about shutting things down. The fact that 
Anthorn stayed  operational was pretty odd even if you thought the new years 
parties got in  the way. Lets face it drink beer with friends or shut a 
transmitter in some  far away place. I know my choice.

They  can easily dual rate Anthorn. But then the signal level should be 
On  eLORAN tests in the US its a Master and the Y station. But its one  
transmitter. The same transmitter has no problem with some other rate running  
at the same time.

Are you sure it's not UK trying to rig something up  for their eLoran 
trials ?
