The guy is looking for a signal that's always there Lino so he can tinker with his antennas, the ones you suggest don't fall into this category.

I always use the German RTTY Weather broadcasts to test antennas and propagation

DDH47 147.3 kHz
DDK2 4583 kHz
DDH7 7646 kHz
DDK9 10100.8 kHz
DDH9 11039 kHz
DDH8 14467.3 kHz

I've changed my equipment so many times, I've forgotten what I have
