[time-nuts] The USFS Frequency Standard...

Technically speaking, the United State Frequency Standard (USFS) is 
still considered to be transmitted via WWVB on 60 kHz, essentially 
making WWVB the USFS.  But is WWVB still a usable frequency standard 
reference since they've gone to phase shifting their signal for time 
keeping purposes?  Will GPS become the "official" USFS reference signal?

Is there a 60 kHz WWVB receiver out there that can still be used as 
reference?  Is there a commercially made receiver out there that now 
uses the phase shifting technique of WWVB for accurate time keeping?

Have I missed something?
