    I’ve heard that the DOD, State Department, and others have been starting to re-install HF communications equipment since its now realized that satellites will certainly be attacked virtually, electronically, and physically in the event of a major war with a space-capable enemy. Given that, it doesn’t make sense at this point to rip out the HF time stations for the relative peanuts that they cost the government annually.

    I can use the services of WWV/H without any extra equipment (No GPS needed) - other than the rig in use. I enjoy using a DDS based VFO. I also like knowing that I am on frequency, which I can do with WWV.

    As a taxpayer, I have no problem with the money spent on the system set. Other may not agree.

    You don't know how much is spent operating WWV, do you?

    hint: it's a few seconds worth of your military budget.

    In other words, a rounding error in accounting, considering the magnitude of these things.
