Caught the voice announcement earlier this morning on WWV with reference to WWVB's (60 kHz) antenna damage and service degradation. The station is currently operating on one antenna and at 30 kW vice 70 kW.

Notice: From approximately 0000 UTC on April 7, 2024 WWVB's south antenna has been disabled as a result of damage from wind gusts in excess of 90 MPH. WWVB continues to operate at reduced overall power using its north antenna only.
