Burt you missed nothing. It would appear that all good intentions did not
lead to new business. So there you go the old receivers useless and no new
ones made.
Certainly all of the old ones can be made to work using the cheatn dpskr
shared with time nuts. But boy compared to the gpsdo's this lazy time nut
likes the simplicity and economics. Sure I can't say I am the first kid on
the block with a USFS but that hasn't been much of a topic lately.

I do fire up the old wwvb receivers just to make sure the cheatn dpskr
works and that they still do. But 99.9% of the time its the gpsdo these
days. Its there until it isn't.
