Sadly, you'll need more than just a lump of Ferrite to stop 60kHz
escaping to the street via the power cables..

That, and you'll probably also find the home power circuit seriously
polluted anyway around 60kHz, as a result of all the "other stuff" you
have that uses small SMPS's, with little filtering, and very unstable
working frequencies.

Best perhaps to run a horizontal loop around the eve's of the house, and
feed that with 60kHz at low level.  But, I have no idea of whatever
legislation you might bust doing that, depending on where you live.

There are other 60kHz time signals out there already, but it's unlikely
we in the UK will be bothered by you in the US doing local domestic time
signal tricks.
