    I thought the NOST proposal was for WWV and WWVH, not WWVB. Most watches and clocks use WWVB.

    This really ticks me off. (No pun intended.) I have several radio updated watches that I like very much, and if the radio signals are dicontinued I'll have to set them manually (the horror!). I wonder how many other people who have radio updated watches or wall clocks will be unaware if the signals stop. I suppose this could actually cause a minor amount of chaos in some situations until everyone is brought up to speed.

    I have looked at some watches which receive a time signal from GPS satellites, but most seem to have a very short battery life. Hmmm. :/
