How about this?  Use the computer's analog input.
One channel gets the AC signal, filtered and sliced.
The other channel gets a monostable multivibrator
fed by the GPS 1PPS signal.  The sampling rate could
be quite low compared to audio recording.

The software would implement a frequency counter
and phase recorder driven by a multibillion dollar
timebase.    The computing power to do this would be
miniscule  compared to the VLF monitoring
done by the omen.com server.
