- Nov 2, 2010WWVH operates on the same frequencies as WWV, except it's located in Hawaii.
There once was a station on 20KHz (WWVL, but it was discontinued in 1972.)
WWVB operates on 60 KHz, not quite as low a frequency as WWVB had. WWV,
WWVH, and WWVB are all operated by NIST.

Actually, the Navel Clock is A and not THE clock. You can select the online
site to draw from and the Navy is just one. WWV transmission come from Fort
Collins, CO which is a ways from the ocean and part of the (NIST) National
Institute of Standards and Technology. WWVB is also there. There is a WWVH
that's a low band site that should be available world wide at least when
propagation cooperates. I imagine that is Navy.
One of the software items I recommended a while back is T-Clock and that has
more features than the standard clock. It can do things like on a day of
the week and a selected time run an application. If WUHU is willing to
supply a separate little applet that would set the clock, you could have a
batch file that takes down WUHU, runs the sync, and reload WUHU. That let
it be a caveat emptor operation for those who can't get WWVB and avoid a
possibly troublesome feature in the main application.
