Just needs to be a description of what you were running for gear, and who you worked on what frequency. Ray is going to put a report in the March issue. By the way, if you have shack photos I'm sure he'd like to get them too but I can't guarantee he'll use all of them. If you didn't take notes and are working from memory, don't worry, it doesn't have to be perfect.

I think some or all of the WWV stations may have been off the air for servicing. Now, 06:15 UTC, WWV is coming in very well (here in Atlanta) on 5 MHz. My clock re-synched with it, and is telling me the right time now. Ollie W2QXR On 2/22/17, Robert Bethman wrote: > That is today's problem!

Ground stations monitor and track the GPS timing, and can adjust it.?In general terms, Cell phone tower?sites typically use Rubidium standards that are GPS disciplined and can reach stabilities of <2.5E-12 for site synchronization and timing, which is what your cell phone clock is locked to. I think WWV uses Cesium standards, but I can't say for sure on that with all certainty.
