[time-nuts] Need Time Help

In practice I'm not convinced the timing requirements for the JT modes in question are even more than a single order of magnitude more severe than the when I have been timing 15 second sequences on my wrist watch during manual non computer aided weak signal operations.  To recap if some one has data or direct personal experience to make the case that extreme levels of timing accuracy will help I'd be interested in seeing this.

That being said I do believe it makes sense to fully use what ever timing resources one has access to.

All the best

In fact less than one second is OK for the usual two minute periods that are required to allow for the Faraday rotation. Although I use a GPSDO for a frequency reference I find JT software reasonably tolerant of frequency.  As I may be missing something I would welcome observations on how important the period timing requirement is, you never know I might get more contacts.
