    Cool WWV

    I'm receiving WWV on 10, 15 & 20 Mhz this afternoon (10-21-17) in Ocean Springs, Mississippi.

    First time I have heard WWV on 20 Mhz in a while .....

    What is WWV? Is it a local radio station? What frequency within the band?

    WWV is the call sign of the USA's Standard Frequency and Time stations on 2.5, 5, 10, 15 and 20 MHz. It provides the definitive answer to the questions "What time is it?" and "What frequency is this?" for North America and much of the rest of the world. I'm sure the UK has similar stations. Google "Standard Time and Frequency", or just Google WWV. With any luck, Google won't think it's World War 5...

    There's also WWVH at Lualualei, Hawaii, on the same frequencies, and WWVL - very low frequency.

    I hear them on 10MHz and use that to check my wall clock in the shack. Some days the signal isn't clear, other days it booms in.
