Gibraltar RTTY, Fax, Navtex freq, can anybody advise please

Hi everyone, I have just added a SSB receiver to my boat and very soon heading down to the Canaries, and then accross to Barbados.
I need to test the SSB to be sure that I can update my weather along the way, so are looking for a strong signal before I leave Gibraltar.
Any information on any freq along my route would be greatly welcomed.
I am using SeaTTY as a programe on my laptop and a HF3/W unit to receive that signal.

Thanks, Chris

Rfax has all the frequencies but don't be too surprised if you don’t receive much in Gib, reception is much better in open water. You might just get dwd weather on rtty on 10.1Mhz as well.
