Few moons ago, I was thinking about to connect little audio amp. with 
attached usual WWVB ferrite antenna to the computer sound card. But I 
was stack about how to modulate the signal using SoundCard libraries. 
There is bunch of example how to generate sine or rectangles. The 
question is how to make it works as WWVB
