Just for fun I just tried to see if I could hear the signal on 24 kHz 
using my GPS referenced HP-3586B and a HP-3336A also GPS locked to 
compare the I.F. frequency using a 1:1 Lissajou pattern.  It's 7:30 
AM here in Los Angeles.  I heard a signal but I doubt that it was 
NAA.  What time of the day would be best, probably when the entire 
path is dark?  My antenna is a dipole about 30-feet on a side, which 
is really all I've got up at the moment.  It's orientation favors 
that part of the country.  I hear WWVB at 60 kHz almost all the time 
with that antenna.  WWVB is quite recognizable because of the phase 
shift signature as seen on my X-Y display.
