    I didn't see info posted in the ARRL News release or on the WWV SES web site about when during the hour of normal broadcasts the DoD on-the-air announcements starting Sept 16 were to air.

    But I assumed it was the same as previous DoD announcements, ie, 10 minutes before the hour for WWVH and 10 minutes after for WWV.

    Listening today I heard it first on WWVH (under WWV) on 10 MHz at 12:50-51Z. Hear it on this clip. (sorry for the quality, but its WWVH under WWV here in FL)

    I got it again more clearly on 15 MHz @13:10Z on a clear channel WWV. Here's that clip.

    This morning at the Albuquerque Duke City hamfest breakfast, the head engineer for WWV was the keynote speaker, it was a very interesting overview of the history of WWV from 1919 through today.

    Logged WW0WWV a couple days ago on 20 CW. Answered a CQ, quick signal report exchange, tnx and 73. I was surprised because the advertised beginning of the special event station doesn't start until tonight at 7PM local. I guess they were testing a few days ago. Test passed.

    Sure would like to know what the anticipated CW frequency will be on 6 meters, if and when they go on-the-air with that mode. I'm thinking 50.035 to 50.045 MHz. Anyone else have a crystal ball?

    Hey... these ops are mostly newbies it seems and need help. If anyone is near fort collins and demonstrate how to contest or run a pile up, please get over there and give these ops some mentorship in how to run a pile up, listen for DX, etc. Listening now, 10/1/2019 at 19:20 GMT and the op can use some HF mentoring /elmering. The op is struggling to give the callsign correctly. 14.238, may be his first time on HF.

    I was lucky enough to log Wwv on the 29th on 20 meters. Confirmed the QSO, donated a few dollars and waiting for my QSL card to come in the mail.
