CESG Colleagues,

Attached is the proposed pink sheet for Time Code B which makes the time code more suitable for such applications as publishing a standardized schedule of services for which mandatory fractional seconds is meaningless.  (By the way does anyone know what the original rationale was for requiring, at a minimum, 1/10 of second time statements?)  The proposed change is the addition of "(optional)" which is in keeping with the method by which optional is designated for the "Z" character in the recommendation.  I believe the "." subfield separator disappears of by application of clause (c).    If this change is made to Time Code B, we likely should apply it to Time Code A.

Best regards,
