    If, as is the normal case, you are only working your sights to the precision of of one second of time, then you make no change and the NA is always right to this level of precision. This change will result in a change of the GHA by 0.25 minutes which is de minimus at this normal level of precision. If you are a perfectionist then you have always made the corrections of the tenths of a second broadcast on WWV so you will just go on doing the same thing except the value you use will change from the current plus 0.6 seconds to a minus 0.4 seconds. When you apply these corrections properly there will be no change in the GHAs.
