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.

My 2 cents from across the ocean.
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
