British Royal Navy FAX Frequency Weirdness

GYA, the UK Royal Navy weather FAX, has been jumping around in frequencies for a couple of days now.

Ary Boender and others report that the 4 MHz frequency of GYA, the UK Royal Navy weather FAX, changed from 4610 to 4070 kHz on July 2. (FAX tuning can be as much as 1.9 kHz away from the USB dial reading.) At one point 4070 was the only active frequency, with the usual skeds on 11086.5 and 18261 being silent.

Today, July 3, Ary reports it back on 4610 at 9826 UTC.

We'll have to keep watching this.
