It's been 4 years since WWVB added phase modulation that's supposed to fix the East coast problem. Have you tried using
a clock that makes use of it?
For example the La Crosse Model # 404-1235UA-SS from Home Depot.
I haven't got one yet since they are about $60 and my old style WWVB clocks work fine, but it would be a lot easier to
get one as opposed to building something.
The lesser of evils is still evil.
