WWV Time To Turn The Clocks Back

WWV Time To Turn The Clocks Back

Post by CK-722 » Sun Nov 03, 2019 2:31 am

Time to turn back time. Headed to get the portable SW to tune in WWV.


Is THAT where they got the idea for the 486-SX?

I use atomic clocks so I don't have to deal with manually changing the clocks.

I have some of the digital clocks that pick up WWVB but they have the Michigan DST/EST change over date off somehow. Switch a week later then they should.
My radio room has an old "Nixie tube" clock that I never have to change, it's on UT .

I can hear WWV on 2.5, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25.000 MHz depending on time of day here. (and the radio & antenna I use)

I have three of those clocks. Two of them flipped when they should have. The third one didn't switch until Sunday evening. By Monday afternoon it had flipped back to DST again. I removed the batteries for about 5 minutes. After I reinserted the batteries it corrected about twenty minutes later.

I use CHU in addition to WWV. Seems CHU comes in clearly when the WWV broadcasts don't, and vice versa.

I think the current CHU signal dominance on 3330 kHz has to do with the current propagation conditions and the fact that the transmitter is only 500 miles away, near Ottawa. When the WWV transmitter was in Beltsville, MD, it boomed in, even on crystal radios and low selectivity AM BC TRF receivers when 2500 kHz was in. WWV on 5000 kHz boomed in on most AM SW portables back in the 1960s before they moved to Fort Collins, CO.

BTW, the WWV 2500 kHz IF image is on 1590 kHz on a 455 kHz IF radio. Has anyone ever heard it there? They moved to Fort Collins in 1966, so unless you are closer, I doubt that anyone has.

Have any of you amateurs tried 80 Meters and 160 Meters recently?

CHU at 7850 KHZ has been off the air for the past two weeks due to transmitter problems.

Probably isn't aware of it. Remind him at your next family gathering.
