> Dear Mr. Dye,
> We have not posted a report on WWV reporting the wrong time.  We have had only 1 outside suggestion that there was a broadcast of the wrong time and our investigation has not confirmed that.  We have found a low voltage on a power supply board feeding the voice which may have led to some problems, but that has now been replaced.  If you have further evidence or other reports concerning this matter we would appreciate that information.  You are only the second person to inquire about this issue.  We take this very seriously, but normally when there are mistakes or problems with our broadcast we receive dozens of reports immediatly.
