Because that was sent last night after I stopped reading email.

I knew about the errata, I left out that detail to see when someone
actually read my citation.  Leo actually did, but not got to his email
yet, I read email in reverse chrono order.

What I said is correct, IS-GPS-200H is STILL the latest version of
the GPS standard.  Leo's link, which I found Monday, is to a copy of
IS-GPS-200H with the errata applied.  So not technically an update to

So yes, UTC from a GPS is now 20 ns (one sigama).  What I said about
+/- 13 ns being noise relative to the spec still applies.

Do you now see how measured GPS time/location can be very precise, but
UTC from a GPS less so?  Have you read the entire 3.3.4?
