GPS uses GPS time which avoids leap seconds.
If you want to introduce something like a leap second, you don't need a
frequency transient. You can adjust the way that you label the cycles.

For sidereal time, the UTC-sidereal offset changes by a second when a leap
second is introduced so the net result is constant.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
