25 MHZ QSL FROM STANDARD TIME AND & FREQUENCY STATION "WWV" FROM COLORADO, USA

Radio Station “WWV” Ford Collins began broadcasting on 25 MHz in 1946, but the broadcast was suspended in 1977. Due to listener interest and changes in broadcasting technology, NIST is pleased to be able to provide this service on a limited basis once again. At present, the broadcast is carried on a base-fed broadband monopole antenna. All normal WWV frequencies operate on a center-fed half-wave dipole antenna, with a dedicated backup transmitter that will come online automatically should the main transmitter fail. The 25 MHz broadcast does not have this capability at this time. The experimental 25 MHz broadcast may be interrupted without notice at any time. A short mp3 audio file of my observation can be heard on: TSS WWV, Colorado, USA 25000 kHz.mp3.  Reception reports can be sent to: wwv@nist.gov or sent via postal mail to: National Institute of Standards and Technology, Radio Station WWV, 2000 E. County Rd. 58, Fort Collins, CO 80524, USA. More information about this broadcast can be find on: http://www.nist.gov/pml/div688/grp40/wwv.cfm. After 6 days I got this QSL:
