    The MSF Annual Maintenance Period in 2001
    The annual maintenance of the BT Rugby 60 kHz MSF transmitter system
    will be
    
    from:
         1300 BST on Monday 16 July 2001
    to:
         1300 BST on Monday 30 July 2001
    
    
    During this period it is likely that the service will be interrupted,
    although
    these outages will be kept to a minimum. The service will be restored
    overnight between 2000 BST and 0800 BST whenever possible.
