Note that as far as I know, ATA in India (10 MHz) ceased shortwave transmissions around the year
2000.

That was one of the few time signal stations that I never heard.

Standard Time & Frequency Signals Broadcast Service :

Last Update : 04 / 03 / 2008

Right -or- Wrong : The National Physical Laboratory (NPL)

Is the 'official' Voice of the Government of India on these

DX Ace - Done -is- Done ~ RHF

Date : Thu, 17 Apr 2008
To : WebMaster and Technical Staff,


National Physical Laboratory (NPL)
New Delhi, INDIA - http://www.nplindia.org/

Subject : NPL -website- Correction concerning "ATA" 10 MHz
Standard Time & Frequency Signals Broadcast Service

The website states that the National Physical Laboratory (NPL)
is still Transmitting a Standard Time & Frequency Signal on
10 MHz -but- It has been reported that around the Year 2000
this Service was Terminated.

Review and Correct the Accuracy of the Information stated
on this NPL -webpage-
Standard Time & Frequency Signals Broadcast Service :
Call Sign `ATA' - http://www.nplindia.ernet.in/time.php
Last Update : 04 / 03 / 2008

Please Confirm : That in-fact the NPL is still Transmitting a
Standard Time & Frequency Signal on 10 MHz -or- Not.

-Or- Please Correct : The NPL -webpage- ASAP.
 http://www.nplindia.ernet.in/time.php

A Reply to Me {for Publication} with the Actions that you have
taken to Confirm or Correct this Issue would be Appreciated.

Question : Indian Time Signal "ATA" still on 10 MHz ?
