[time-nuts] WWV, WWVB and Daylight Savings Time

Currently, getting Daylight Savings Time status is easy using WWV or WWVB
since they have bits in the protocol marking status for the US, and in the
case of WWVB, impending change.

If both the HF and LF signals go away due to the proposed budget cuts, what
is the next simplest way (for something like a microprocessor based clock)
to get DST information?

Neither NTP or GPS provide that information.

I have seen some websites with DST information, but decoding HTTP seems a
daunting task for a microprocessor clock.
