    Should be interesting. After weeks of trying on my dipole I finally heard their restored 25 MHz signal. They nicely QSLed it too (WWVH and CHU also send reception confirmations).

    It was a very interesting show, especially the 25 MHz story. Very cool!

    Very good. I visited WWV/WWVB in May 2012 on my way West through Colorado. Drove 120 mi. out of my way just to do it :). I didn't get to go inside because the stations no longer offer tours but I did get permission to snap a few outside pictures for my own collection. All in all a neat experience :).

    Proud to say we supplied the balun for the new 25MHz antenna.

    Being here in Fort Collins, CO 80524 I use WWV mainly to align my oscillators on 25MHz as they are in very close and it works great. I hope to visit the site this year, I have collected a lot of vintage black and white photos of the setup around 1960! I have them in the shack!

    Is WWV Colorado in the united states? Their web page uses meters and kilometers.

    Yes, WWV and WWVB are in Colorado, just a little north of Fort Collins. The measurement and dissemination of standard time/frequency is a universally scientific endeavor, thus the use of the metric system, exclusively.
