    Good grief. Talk about fake news.

    I really hope folks who get great reception of WWV and WWVH are recording the signals for posterity and sharing them. I'd love to pull up an hour or two of the audio on YouTube and just let it run... Unfortunately my SW receiving ability is poor here in Oregon, otherwise I'd do this.

    Yep. MF-HF propagation varies, which is why WWV(H) uses several frequencies. GPS in the low GHz range (link) is mostly not affected by propagation vagaries.

    Yeah, time to start waxing nostalgic. Maybe I'll turn on my FRG-7 and keep it tuned to WWVH until the final tick, or something commemorative like that.

    Qualcuno sa veramente che ore sono? Qualcuno se ne importa davvero?

    Let’s face it WWV/WWVH probably looks like low hanging fruit to budget cutters.

    Hard to justify them in today’s world of cheap quartz watches/gps/cell phones/tablets etc. Sad to see them go though. I used to routinely set my shack clock to WWV.

    I often use wwv for alignment purposes. I signed.
