[time-nuts] NIST

I have a very simple circuit for a (microwatt) 60 kHz transmitter that takes a digital input (only needs someone to calculate out the WWVB code from a GPS clock).  The biggest problem I find with my WWVB clocks is getting a good signal, which is highly depend on location in the house and orientation of the device's antenna.  So I have one WWVB receiver in a good place and key my little transmitter as a "translator" elsewhere in the house.

I wonder if anybody will market a GPS-to-WWVB translator?
