Yes. You can check for the sked by searching for ISL in the following doc:

Both the state run radio and AFRTS are on.

I'd like to hear the state run station. Any idea how hard it is to
receive from the Eastern US?

I haven't tried them in quite some time. AFRTS has been audible here.

One other thing is that those ISL broadcasts MAY be in USB, not sure but I seem to
recall that they were in the past.

Maybe someone else might confirm or deny that..

I'm currently hearing AFRTS 9980 out of Iceland //12133.5 out of Key West at 1640.

So Iceland might be audible on 13865 at 1755-1825.

Try Long Wave 189.

Can hear that in Holland Europe during the night,
Iceland is somewhere between Europe an d N-America.

Thanks for the link.

I haven't tried checking yet, but here's what I cobbled from the Icelandic
service.

1215-1300 UT to Europe - 15775 kHz

1410-1440 UT to N.America - 15775 kHz

1755-1825 UT to Europe - 13865 kHz

1835-1905 UT to N.America - 15775 kHz

2300-2335 UT to N.America - 13865 kHz

Again, these b'casts might be in sideband, I will have to check.

Thanks!

is 189 from iceland?

can't get any LWs here in ontario (again, yb400), but when i go to bay of
fundy every summer, can catch quite a few. 162 comes in strongest, 252 seems
to have disappeared, but 189 comes in regularly too, never knew where it
came from
