Investigation of the receivability of VLF standard time and frequency signals in Zaria, Nigeria

EO Ukem

Abstract


This study is on the receivability of some standard time and frequency signals in the VLF range in Zaria, Nigeria. Signal field strengths of various stations were estimated, and a suitable radio receiving system was set up to receive them. Using the assembled receiver, some of the transmissions, including the Omega W/L at Monrovia, Liberia, and GBR at Rugby, United Kingdom, were received and identified.

Keywords: signal, receiver, standard time, standard frequency
