    I have wanted something like this for some time. Excellent!
    I keep my PC synched very closely to the correct time, so I look forward to running some tests to see how this compares
    with using WWV, in terms of accuracy. The short WWV time ticks are ideal for synching a stop watch. In my experience,
    relying on the eye to synch to the displayed time is not nearly as reliable as using the ear.
    Thank you for making this utility available.
