Short Description WWVB is the lowest frequency time signal in the USA.
I/Q Raw Recording
Audio Sample

WWVB is a VLFVery Low Frequency (3-30 kHz) time signal in the USA. The time code is encoded in the duration of the gap between pulses. PSKPhase-Shift Keying is also used on the carrier as an additional time code. The time code format and additional information can be found on the WWVB Wikipedia page.
