Hi

The referenced line item is $6.8 million a year. It is still very much unclear if that is just WWV(H)
(from the reference it must include them) or if it also includes WWWVB.  Without any clarification, 
we are only guessing about WWVB. Given the way the budget process works, there’s never a
lot of clarity at this point.
