Regarding the entry for 1975-06/07 you say "J. Terrien, the director of
the BIPM, apologized for the way that the radio broadcasts of time
signals had been changed to have leap seconds."

I can find nothing about radio time signal broadcasts or UTC in the
article you link to. Can you point me to the relevant page and paragraph?

Humber, Thames, Dover, Wight, Portland: West or southwest, backing south or
southeast for a time, 4 or 5, decreasing 3 at times. Slight or moderate. Rain
or showers. Moderate or good.
