    Re: Radio Synchronized Clock
    From: Brian Whatcott

    Ah: I didn't make it clear.
    1) Clock modules and complete radio synchronized clocks are available cheaply.
    2) A chronometer is required for traditional nav methods
    3) Will a radio synchronized clock stay locked at sea?
    4) The range of a low frequency transmitter in the 60kHz to 75kHz range is
    about 2000 nm for our purposes
    
    Therefore - this clock though admirably accurate, is not suited to the deep
    sea task.
    
    OK?
