    Re: telegraphic longitude article
    From: Paul Hirose

    This article from the 1911 Encyclopaedia Brittanica describes methods
    for determining time, including two telegraphic longitude methods:
    
    http://23.1911encyclopedia.org/T/TI/TIME_MEASUREMENT_OF.htm
    
    George has already described one method, in which a single
    chronometer served both stations.
    
    In the other method each station had its own chronometer. The stations
    worked semi-independently, during the same time period if desired, and
    didn't have to observe the same stars. The telegraph link was used to
    compare clocks, but not to transmit meridian passages.
