What would be a good antenna for 60kHz WWVB station?

No.
Scroll down to "Signal Description".
Looks like the computer clocking charts you see in some chip datasheets and radio service manuals. Interesting. Thanks for posting it, and the video. I can't seem to catch WWVB here on my only radio capable of tuning that low. Just a very faint carrier, which may or may or may not be RFI.

I have a 17 foot telescopic stainless whip (MFJ 1979) I can attach to my truck. Using a length of coax I connect the antenna to the cable going into the house, and this in turn connects to my RSPdx SDR. I can at least see the carrier almost 24 hours a day, but at night the signal improves considerably. Using this setup, the best signal I have had was a 20.3 db SNR at just over S4. My full size flat top 1/2 wave 40 meter dipole is no match for the whip, I assume it is due to the whip being vertical.
