you can do what I do to drive "mars time" clocks.  Hydrogen maser 
derived 10 MHz into a HP 3325B set for the right rate for the clock 
(i.e. slightly less than 32kHz).  I wouldn't be "true" sidereal time 
(because the rate is uniform), but it's an easy and straightforward 
approach.

(and no, the Maser derived 10 MHz isn't needed, but I happen to have it 
handy, so why not)
