AT SOME POINT IN THE FUTURE THIS SITE WILL BE DISCONTINUED BECAUSE THE WEBMASTER HAS A NEW RANGE OF ACTIVITIES AND INTERESTS.

WHAT TIME FORMAT AND ACCURACY DO YOU NEED ?
CONSIDER YOUR REQUIREMENTS:



FOR SERIOUS WORK:


SOURCES OF TIME  -  Direct Links to a  Primary  Time  Standard:

CONVENIENT PORTABLE TRANSFER CLOCKS  -  For temporary use:

To carry 'time' between a device linked to the primary source and e.g. a remote field site, or a group of multiple observing stations, or to maintain local time when the primary source is inaccessible, we may also use a  (secondary)  Local Clock  like a  clock, stopwatch or electronic bleeper, which is first synchronised with a primary time source  and checked again after the observing run.

Can you help us with improvements to this site?  Do you want to take it over?  Email:
