Here and on ntp-questions always helping me out! Thanks!
Moving it up to the roof would be difficult. Would have to talk to all
neighbours to ask permission to run a cable to the roof. I'll have to keep
it at this location.
Anyway, in position hold I would assume that using 2 satellites will give me
good time. Right?
