That's a great idea!

Now if we could just find a way to negate the DSP delay so that the
Greenwich Time Signal is accurate on the local derived FM signal...


piece of cake.

separate 60KHz receiver that is timed to override auto on the hour..


And any long programme that runs over the top of the hour gets pips splatted
over it?

I've got three radio controlled clocks (don't know where from) and a
radio controlled watch (Mannheim, Germany.) And it's very satisfying to
see them all in sync with each other, further, the pips at the top of
the hour on BBC news off of satellite, their pips are in sync with my
four, so all are right or all are wrong but at least they all agree.

those hoping OFCOM may actually be doing anything at all

It would seem they are mostly working out how to reduce their own carbon
footprint, and have forgotten that they actually have a purpose..
