is this more important?
Maybe with the MeToo movement in mind, we can look at how the term XYL is derived from YL. Isn't this a bit of an insult to women married to HAMS? If this is so, maybe we should find out who coined a women married to a HAM man by the term XYL. If it was Hiram Percey, then any pictures of him at ARRL Headquarters need to be removed, and possibly destroyed.  Tongue

I for one would rather hear about WWV and get an update on where this stands.

Receiving it here now  on 10 15 and 20 MHz, best on 20 MHz.  None very strong though must be corn-dituns.

Here the ham is the OM. The other half could be the OL. Equal Rights. Just don't have abbreviations for 30 pronouns to choose from!

If the feds shut down WWV would that be killing time? Oh, wait. Isn't federal government killing time an oxymoron?

It's about time for WWV analog transmissions/stations to be declared a strategic asset until the end of time and be included in a revised version of the "National Timing Resilience and Security Act".

HF radio based time signals should prevent a nefarious group or oppressor from secretly 'adjusting' our internet or other wired time signals, because this would be noticed globally even if after the fact.

Time is to Truth as Radio is to Freedom

about cuckoo clocks:
"You got a face like a cuckoo clock" - Theodore Cleaver
"He spoke with the eloquence of a busted cuckoo clock" - overheard


Time signals from secondary sources especially private/commercial sources may suffer from time transfer issues and some time sources are off by significant amounts.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_and_frequency_transfer
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_synchronization_in_North_America


Disregarding the excellence of shortwave radio, time of some sort might be had from:
- GPS
- Loran-C (Recent United States legislation, such as the National Timing Resilience and Security Act of 2017 and other bills, has been introduced that may resurrect Loran) 
- Telephone audio (303)499-7111 for WWV (Colorado) and (808)335-4363 for WWVH
- possible e-Loran ( https://insidegnss.com/pnt-excom-backs-eloran-as-a-step-to-full-gps-backup-system/ )

This is all a ton of trouble. Only analog signals that can be 'demodulated' by low-tech are the best fallback for national asset.

I prefer to be punctual. Without WWV, how will I know when it is time to waste time, be unproductive, or procrastinate?

P,

    "... when it is time to waste time, be unproductive, or procrastinate? "

My internal clock does all that and less.
