[time-nuts] Correcting jitter on the 1 PPS signal from a GPSreceiver.

I see in the Trimble Resolution T data sheet that they
say that the PPS signal is "within 15 nS to GPS or UTC (1 Sigma)
when using an over determined solution in stationary mode.".
I take this to mean that the PPS signal should be within 15 nS
and that comparing 2 units that there should be no more than
30 nS between the two edges. This is comparing the rising edges.

Where are you getting the "15 ns accuracy" number from? When I look at the
Trimble spec's they have a number of errors described (like sawtooth) that
are larger than 15 ns.
