Many thanks for this tool.
I'm testing it by running it in parallel with a GPS diciplined NTP server
as a comparison. I'll let you know what I find.
It can indeed be used happily on the same PC that is used to run Faros,
so makes a nice "one box" solution. At present, here that's my test
machine, a P4 1.8G machine running Windows 2000 (and a whole host of
other app's that run 24/7!)
Also, there are several PPS capable GPS receivers out there, the older
Garmin GPS16's are suitable too.
As a simple GPS driven SNTP source for other purposes, it works well
enough. Nice job Alex, well done.
For anyone who wants to run Faros, and cant get an internet based NTP
service to work well (if at all) or is running it /portable, this is a
I suspect it will also find use with the MS, WSPR and other esoteric mode
guys, who need better accuracy time referencing than you can get from
just a free running PC.
