[time-nuts] 1900kHz radiolcation testing on east coast US?

Taking in account that is is heard quite strong in most US and even in 
Toronto and that it sweeps in a fairly controlled way it is an 
intentional radiator.  It could be an ionospheric sounder or a sea waves 
measuring device of a new kind. I think that an interference so powerful 
must be discarded.
I don't receive it in Spain but I'm very close to several powerful MW 
broadcast transmitters and they can mask the signal due to saturation.
