I bookmarked the site.  It was exactly synchronous with my LaCross WWVB analog clock - so the thing must actually work after all.  My computer clock was about 7 seconds fast.  Until now I have had it set to synchronise with the time.windows.com time server.  I reset the computer to the time.nist.gov server and I now see about a 1 second difference.  I notice there are several NIST sites and a few others available.  Some day when I have time on my hands I'll check out to see which one is closest to WWV on the radio.

Since WWVB covers most of the country 24 hours a day, wonder if anyone has ever attempted to use it to lock the clock oscillator of a digital vfo, to achieve near-WWV stability and accuracy with one's transmit frequency.

Interesting, it is about 1 sec. behind my Fisher Scientific NIST tracable clock.
