Does your cell phone work in the room? The CDMA time receivers
work in the strangest places. The only places I've had no luck:
- In the bowels of a big building along the mass tech corridor
- when moved to a bad spot inside a fairly steel and concrete-heavy
lab at the university of utah (works in other spots in the lab).
But aside from that, I've got them working in network closets
and labs all over the place. Worth giving a shot if you're really
desperate to play. They're not quite as accurate as GPS (~10 microseconds
vs. ~2-5 microseconds), but what's a few microseconds compared to
sticking an antenna on the roof?
(As a frequency standard, they're quite good. But you can't autocorrect
for the CDMA propagation delay).
