      WWVH 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.
