      Great stuff. Thank you for sharing. I think it could make a world of
      difference with Faros.

      Alex (VE3NEA) indicated that members of the group were interested in an
      accurate NTP Time Server. Out of necessity, I built one for my FAROS 1.3
      Beacon Monitoring Station in South Africa.

      See http://kw1o.com/faros/ for information on how to put one together.
      Select the (Review the Stratum-0 Project) link.

      Worse case cost should be under $500. Gross accuracy over my home network
      is +-20ms, but you can achieve better than +-10ms accuracy in Faros due to
      the way it averages the time data. I never even approached this level of
      accuracy from NTP Internet Time here in South Africa. Much of the time
      +-100ms was the norm, and Internet downtime is high. If you build one, I
      think you will be surprised at how poor Internet Time really is. In my
      research for the project, I found that in general, Internet business
      transactions only require +-200ms accuracy, thus there really is no need for
      very accurate time on the Internet, at least from an Internet business
