WWV Seeks 25-MHz Reception Reports

Anyone hearing the experimental High Frequency 25.000 MHz NIST WWV broadcast from Fort Collins, Colorado, USA?

The broadcast information includes time announcements, standard time intervals, standard frequencies, UT1 time corrections, a BCD time code, geophysical alerts and marine storm warnings.

Modulation is double side-band amplitude.

Radiated power is 2.5kW into a half-wave vertical dipole.

Prior to 06 September 2017, the configuration used was an experimental turnstile antenna with circular polarization with a radiated power of 2.0kW.

Listeners comments and reception reports may be mailed to or sent via postal mail to:

National Institute of Standards and Technology
Radio Station WWV
2000 E. Country Rd. 58
Fort Collins, CO 80524

(TU Mike Schaffer, KA3JAW, for the heads-up!)
