URGENT - SAVE WWV WITH THIS DOD SURVEY!


"Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Dennis Dura, who shares the following note from Paul English (WD8DBY), Chief, Army MARS:

DOD Broadcast and Listener Survey on WWV and WWVH

From 14-24 August, WWV and WWVH will be broadcasting a DOD message at 10 mins past the hour on WWV and 50 mins past the hour on WWVH. As part of the message, all listeners are asked to take a listener survey at the URL specified in the message.

www.dodmars.org/home/wwv-survey

The results of this survey are shared with WWV/H personnel to show their NIST chain of command how often their stations are monitored and how the various timing signals and messages are used by the listeners.

Please take a listen to this message and take the survey…as the saying goes, “every vote counts” and your input to this survey is being used to help demonstrate the importance of these stations.

Thanks for your consideration in this effort.

Paul English, WD8DBY
Chief, Army MARS

2. Nope



Canada has it's own time signal - don't remember the frequency offhand.

9. The interesting thing about them

Is they report in Eastern Standard Time, and not UTC.

10. Agree!



UTC is the normal benchmark.

4. Done.

FWIW, for some reason WWV is extremely difficult to pick up here.

On a side note when we went last weekend to pick up the pup in Southern Tennessee, I took the Skywave SSB along. Had a lot of great DX in Louisville and Fayetteville, TN.

6. Here he is yesterday

He's like a cuteness explosion!

He's doing very well. He's only 9 weeks old and we've had him for a week and he's already taken to pads to do his business without being told.



Now just gotta work on the puppy biting thing. I was on the couch earlier and he jumped up and latched hard onto my... er....well... he bit down hard through my pants onto my balls. DAMN did that hurt!

7. Too cute for words!



The potty training is a good sign - he catches on quick!

Tried not to laugh about the balls, but...



He will no doubt grow out of it - or you'd better start wearing a cup.
