And not to be left out of the pre-leap second party, those of you with HP/Symmetricom SmartClock's can also have fun. That would include the 58503-series T&F standards as well as most of the Z38-series. Send these commands ASAP and (surprise) see what you get:

Also, notice that depending where you are in the world, a leap second is not yet reported by the syst:stat command.
Even if you don't have a 58503 running, go to http://www.realhamradio.com/GPS_websites_list.htm and try sites like:


Do this quickly; by later today all the live sites should be reporting the same status.
