Thanks for the Tip Mr. Frímann,

Last time I checked it out it was
much "MUCH" too expensive
for something already paid for with tax dollars (GPS).
We should by rights already have miniature
atomic clocks in every home for
maybe $100.00

America will not standardize hardware
and that's why this specialty stuff is so expensive.

The variety here is ridiculous.

There is needless duplication and lesser versions of everything
unimportant. TVs radios whatever..
Try to get quality stuff cheaply here sometime.
Almost nothing is built in the USA anymore.
Someone in Government has sold our country abroad.

Most all That which is important and complete is extremely expensive.

Also I need to calibrate only once per minute
the way I do things.

There are only milliseconds of difference
between WWV and my location due to
Ionispheric bounces.

If I were actually a scientist and made my living
at this Id worry more about precision and accuracy.

There is no reason at this time
for me to do this.
Even though Id like to.

I think possibly we are returning
to an Agricultural Society instead
of an Industrial one. Reactionary
in politics.
Not my kind of world.

Hi Geoffrey,

Using radio signal for time in earthquake mesurement is quite
inaccurate. You should get a GPS clock, as you just have to buy it once
and set it up once. It is not that expensive in the long run.
