So WWV is ending service but a feature of the new rigs and firmware/software is accurate freq calibration. So is flex going to provide another accurate time base or will this great feature just go away in the next released version leaving us sol?

When I was a small child, my grandma used to say: "Yer hollerin' before yer hurt!"
In other words..."You're frett'n  'bout something that ain't happened yet." 

Grandma would say....let's wait and see if anything comes of this before we begin the panic-driven stampede...

My dad might say...."The machinations of the Federal Government are as mysterious as the ways of God, but much less benevolent, and completely unpredictable.  Never worry about something you hear that the government MIGHT be planning to do....but watch your wallet."

Please sign the petition to keep WWV on the air.

If our government can spend trillions and trillions of our dollars on unnecessary wars around the world they can afford a few million for WWV!

Pass this link on to all of your friends to sign.


NIST station WWV and sister stations are among the oldest radio stations in the United States, having been in continuous operation since May 1920. The station has transmitted the official US Time for nearly 100 years, and is an instrumental part in the telecommunications field, ranging from broadcasting to scientific research and education. Additionally, these stations transmit marine storm warnings from the National Weather Service, GPS satellite health reports, and specific information concerning current solar activity, and radio propagation conditions. These broadcasts are an essential resource to the worldwide communications industry. This petition requests continued funding of these stations be maintained into the 21st century and beyond to ensure future operations.
