The sites are aimed at improving position information. To the degree that having an
accurate location for your antenna improves timing, simply doing that is a step forward
for your GPSDO. 

Most sites also will give you information that shows the timing solution at a given point
in time. To the degree that you can connect that to prior data it could be useful. There
are more than a few steps involved in getting this to work.
