Hi Ronald:

Have a look at the different time transfer methods at:

Since these involve receiving a signal from a transmitter you need to have a 
way to know which signals you can get in your building.

For example LORAN-C and WWVB are low frequency signals.  CDMA cell phone is 
microwave.  VLF military stations are used to send subs encrypted messages and 
have well controlled carriers.

Have Fun,
