    any handheld GPS unit will display time with sub-millisecond accuracy. You don't have to worry about WWV reception anymore.
    Also, I have done lunar occultation timing for years, starting with the stopwatch method. Careful studies showed that while many
    people "thought" they were getting 0.1 second or less accuracy they always were around 0.3 second accuracy. Just nerve conduction
    and muscle contraction takes significant time.
