	I wouldn't expect this to cause any serious synchonization
problem; anyone using HF for time has to have the ability to hold
over for a miniumum of several hours anyway due to the vagaries of
normal shortwave propagation.  (Even 24-48 hour disruptions aren't
uncommon after a large solar event.)

	That said, I and many others "still use" WWV -- there aren't
exactly a surplus of suitable backup methods to GPS these days.

	But if anyone needs it, consider using the fine HF time
service provided by our friendly neighbors to the north:
