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
