Thanks, glad you have such good records.  Maybe they are waiting until Jan.  
28 to start transmitting it this time.  I wonder what the magic formula is  
as to when they start ?

Some had asked how I am able to view the data stream?  I have a homemade  
receiver that's set up where I can record the raw data.  Since the previous  
event, I wrote some software that will notify me when there is a pending  
leap second and I need them to start transmitting it where I can verify my  
software is working correctly!

Connected by DROID on Verizon Wireless

I just checked and my Z3801A isn't seeing it yet.

Last time, it started getting announced on July 28.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
