    I will miss it. I have used it as a frequency standard and to calibrate an s meter when the signal is steady enough.

    If you take a radio apart and put it back together enough times, you'll end up with enough spare parts to make another one.

    More people signed the Chinese lives matter petition. Did anyone else know that was a thing?

    The reason more people signed it was because it was trending across social media. Social media has been known to divide a country solely on what is trending.

    I brought up the wwv a couple of times this week and no one even knows what it is.

    I hate to see it go but haven't made up my mind that this is such a bad thing. Who besides hams and people with atomic clocks are going to notice when they pull the plug? Is it really worth 6.2 million to keep it going? People will complain about the government wasting money then raise hell when something they use gets cut. Atomic clocks won't work anymore and some hams might have to buy some test equipment. What else is there? I don't think it's the tax payer's responsibility to provide me with a frequency standard or make sure my watch is set.

    I agree but just because you could do worse things with the money doesn't justify spending it.

    Hmm perhaps right. Turn it over to ham volunteers to keep it on the air like HAARP, take the maintenance and electric bill $ from ARRL dues which have just gone up a year ago anyway, and have a rabid dog in the atomic clock room to make sure the hams keep the their cotton pickin mitts off the stuff they think they understand. as in "QRZ understand".

    Shit I'd move there and live on site for free if I could bring a couple of my radios and set up duplexer so I could use the antenna farm. The thing sorta runs itself, and when something need done that is out of my reach call the lowest bidder (as done today?) to tweek the atoms or set the leap-microsecond.. I have a small horde of minions to assist me that would immediately move to Colorado for a certain reason and live almost commune style in the other building mining crypto at night among other activities. I would of course live in the transmitter building in a private couple of rooms as befits our grandiose imagination.

    See? I got this. Lemme at it.

    When it goes off the air, it should be recorded. No doubt there will be a statement thanking the loyal listening public.

    Having some of the top qrz members maintain it would make a shitty reality show. Somehow it would end up connected to an endfed antenna or a g5rv. Then the modified no tuner needed zs6bkw guy would show up.

    Someone would eventually decide to reduce power to qrp levels. The guys that don't have an amp and don't want anyone else using one. The "you need to upgrade your antenna" guys.

    If QRZ people took it over they would need to broadcast their resumes all week and there would be no time left for tones.
