Re: Why aren't ISPs providing stratum 1 NTP service?

We were unable to find a WWV capable clock for under a few thousand dollars. The old Heathkit one ($300 or so?) was no longer available and all of the other ones I found mentioned in the xntp docs were in the thousands. You mention using a GPS clock, while I've been looking into WWV. Can you point me to some, hopefully inexpensive, hardware that we could use to provide this service? -David - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
