SSB UK Weather Fax Frequencies

Hi everyone. I have just finished installing an Icom M802 and have been trying to download weather faxes. However I can find no signal on any of the UK Northwood frequencies (2618.5, 4610, etc). I know to drop the freq by 1.9 khz, use USB and that they do not transmit continuously but tried many times to no avail. Was beginning to think it may be my installation so tried the German Freq from Hamburg and they worked fine.
Has Northwood closed down or changed Frequencies recently or is Portsmouth Harbour a no Northwood reception area, lol???

Re: SSB UK Weather Fax Frequencies

Hello,
There is no signal on any of the Northwood frequencies in the Netherlands anymore. The JOMOC website: RNEIN Home Page has no information other than that the weather faxes are also no longer available there. So it certainly looks like this service did close down. The lack of outrage on this forum probably explains that decision.
