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