A new one for me! Thanks to Ron Liekens for the tip!

I have added them to the schedule built into Black Cat HF Weather Fax as one 24 hrs, to make it easier for users to tune into them, as there is no known schedule for the station.

I returned home early today and managed to capture one chart of DDK7 at 14:42 UTC on 15988 kHz (USB carrier 15986.1 kHz) before the signal faded out.
