September 5, 2014   

The MSF 60 kHz time and frequency signal broadcast from Anthorn Radio Station will be shut down on Thursday 11 September 2014 from 10:00 to 14:00 BST (09:00 to 13:00 UTC).

The interruption to the transmission is required to allow maintenance work to be carried out in safety.

If you require any additional information, please contact us at:

(Our thanks to Tony, G4CJC for spotting this item) 


The MSF 60 kHz standard-frequency and time signal, broadcast by Babcock on behalf of NPL, is occasionally taken off-air to allow maintenance work on the masts and antennas at Anthorn Radio Station to be carried out in safety. This means that your radio-controlled clock will not be picking up the MSF signal, so may not be working correctly.

The duration of each outage period will be kept to a minimum, and the signal may be back on-air prior to the times given above.
