JJY 40 kHz reactivated again

National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) sent "a suicide corps", wearing nuclear protective suits, on May 9 to recover the Mt.Ootakadoya JJY transmitting site - located 17km from dangerous Fukushima No.1 nuclear power station - which was destructed by lightning on April 25. After the recovering works 40kHz time signal was temporally reactivated at 0408UT on the day. The transmission is remote-controlled and may be temporally stopped in case of bad weather condition.
