You can use WWVB for timing but it is not as easy as buying the kit.
First you need a better antenna and then a good location for it that
is away from noisy electronics.    then you have to let it disincline
a local clock for a while.  It will not be as good as GPS and you may
never get 24 hour reception, even with a larger loop antenna.
