One needs the models that put out a tick every second. They are available
for general purchase. The pulse can then be used to lock an oscillator.
The Tucson Amateur Packet radio group known as TAPR, distribute kits
that provide the electronics. The also sell the unpackedged GPS receivers
that go with them. These are/were described on their web site http://www.tapr.org
which I cant reach , having tried last 36 hours.
