    Greg,
    
    I think my new reduction (message Atomic clock to the list)
    shows beyond any reasonable doubt that the clock was 1 min ahead.
    
    It only remains to understand how is such thing possible.
    (And then to convince Bill that it actually happened:-)
    It seems to me that an "atomic watch" is a usual quartz watch which is
    automatically adjusted by radio signans. How frequently?
    
    Now an ordinary quartz watch (non-atomic) will go away few seconds
    per YEAR. So how exactly this happens that an adjustment of such watch
    leads to 1 minute error? Can you describe the procedure of adjustment?
    I cannot imagine this procedure.
    
    
    Alex
