Here is a decoder for the time signals sent from station WWVB on 60 kHz radio frequency.

The object includes a standard time keeping clock using the Parallax Propeller's crystal as a time base. The clock is updated by the time data received from the WWVB station when decoding is successful.

Requires a radio receiver such as the module available from (as of Feb 2019):

I noticed in the receiver object,  PulseReceiver method, I stated that it "Monitors the data_pin for negative pulses"..., where in fact it is monitoring positive pulses. I will just call it a typo.

I noticed that pv electronics has modified their website and the link to their WWVB decoder board was broken. A new link to the board at their site has been provided.
