RE: Interesting stratum 1 NTP clock

Netcom Systems has a similar product for its Smartbits analyzers.

These are special-purpose tools: They're meant for syncing up two analyzers
for precise measurement. I don't think either analyzer vendors' clock
functions as an general-purpose NTP server.

W&G also used to make or resell a stratum 1 NTP speaking GPS clock with
oven-based thermally stabilized  oscillator. I loved it. But I cannot find
it on their web page, so perhaps they do not sell it anymore. It was a
little pricy, and Tony's suggestion looks much cheaper.

Folks who run NTP in their nets might wanna check out:

This is a reasonably affordable, NTP-ready, GPS based stratum 1 chimer,
complete with 10BaseT interface.  It's also getting close to being

I've been beta testing one for a couple of weeks and it seems to chime
reasonably well.


p.s. I have no finanical interest in this product or this company
whatsoever.  I'm just a time geek...
