leap second recording

Here's a recording of the leap second on WWV on 31 Dec 2005. This was previously discussed in my article, "december 31 leap second". I recorded this with my Sony ICF SW7600GR tuned to 15 mhz. Notice that during the station identification at the start of hour 0, there are doubled ticks during the first three seconds. So for now, UT1 = UTC + 0.3 seconds. Here's the recording:
