The report below was from about 600 miles farther northeast up the
Atlantic coast (therefore closer to Europe than the Outer Banks) and
using conventional receivers (SDR-IQ, R8A) but might still be of use to
you regarding targets. In general Saudi Arabia - 1521, Croatia - 1134,
France - 1206, Canary Islands - 621, Mauritania - 783, Morocco - 612,
several Spain (585, 684, 999), and several Algeria (549, 891, 981) are
the fire-breathers this time of year. Your local sunset and just after
would be prime time. Northerly countries (UK, Germany, etc.) can be
heard but are generally better from late August onward.

I'm sure Alan Willie's logs from Newfoundland could also be useful.
