Just had a quick listen (0044 utc) 1.8-2.0 MHz. CW on the
bottom, a bit of SSB and AM on the upper part of the band.
Other than a bit of crud at 1880 kHz, 160 sounds normal.
Nothing but QRN on 1915.

Correct me if I am wrong please.

There is a military base in the middle of Labrador (literally the middle of
no where).

That may leave all of Labrador or Northern Newfoundland to have a listen.

 Stay tuned, and any additional reports are welcome...I think we have
narrowed it down to something in the Maine/New Brunswick.Nova Scotia areas.

I would also put Newfoundland in the region of interest.  From my location
in the greater Boston area, the direction of arrival is more east than
northeast (around 75 deg as I said earlier).  I get the same heading every
time I measure the signal and I'm confident in my ability to resolve
directions with my RX array.  The F/B I see on this signal with my array
suggests the signal is not particularly high angle.  The area around St.
John's, Newfoundland area would be right in line with my estimated
of arrival.
