    Re: Radio Clock or Internet GMT - which should I believe?
    From: Lu Abel

    WWV, as Frank pointed out, is the US's time service and broadcasts on 2.5, 5, 10, and 15 MHz (exact frequencies).   CHU is the Canadian time service and broadcasts on 3.33 and 7.85 MHz.   Since WWV broadcasts from Colorado, when I lived on the east coast of the US I found CHU to have a stronger signal, more easily captured with a cheap SW radio.

    Hello Lu and thanks for your reply and for the link to time.gov
    I am in the UK and have been using http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/ which I
    now realise is probably not an official website. I do not know if we have a
    British equivalent to time.gov and will search later.
    The radio clock is brand new - I loaded it with batteries yesterday and left
    it for an hour and when I came back it adjusted itself so was updated within
    the previous hour.
    I still think that Wi Fi adds variability - I will try the same on my PC
    which connects to the router with a cable.
    I am not familiar with WWV or CHU = are they radio broadcasts? I have a good
    radio that could receive short, long and all other waves. Do you know the
    frequency for that?
