  • The signal is much stronger at night (specifically, when it is dark at your location and at Fort Collins). I had done some experiments with the unit from DigiKey, I built a circuit to send the data to my PC and recorded it overnight. The data was excellent in the wee hours, but during the day I could usually get nothing. There is lots of info on the WWVB broadcasts, including graphs that show how the signal strength varies over time, at

  • The link he gives is just a link to the Proto Advantage store. There doesn’t appear to be any breakout board that is specific to this chip. They carry generic SMT to DIP adapters as does SparkFun.

No public wish lists :(
