via the RSGB: MSF signals closed for maintenance

A scheduled annual maintenance shutdown of the MSF 60kHz Radio Time Signal service is planned.

It will allow safe working on the masts and antennas.

The service will be off-air from 0700 to 1700UTC each day between 4 to 21 April 2022.

The transmission will be restored overnight whenever possible.

A radio-controlled clock will not be able to pick up the MSF signal during these periods, so may drift off from the correct time.
