WWV and WWVH are planned to be shut down due to major proposed budget cuts.


It's not clear if WWVB, which is used by many so-called "atomic" clocks and
watches, is also going to be shut down, but since WWVB is also "a NIST
radio station in Colorado," the answer appears to be YES.

I've signed the petition to request that funding be maintained, and I
encourage you to do the same.


Obviously U.S. hams alone cannot produce 100,000 signatures; help will also
be needed from industry, consumers, the military, etc.
