    Radio time signals disappear
    From: Herman Dekker
    Date: 2018 Aug 7, 09:39 -0700

    In The Netherlands the NOS (Dutch Broadcasting Foundation) has decidid that the Time Signals Pips that where send on the whole hour, before the newsbulletin, are obsolete.

    The motivation:
    Every person now uses one accurate digital watch. And more and more people listen online or Digital to Radio, and the time delay, online or digital makes these pips unreliable. So no more time pips.

    The pips were used from 1948 (6 pips at that time). In 1991 the pips where reduced to 3 pips and now 2018 no more pips. Again a source for time control disappears.

    Regards
