How good is Loran for timekeeping?  How does it compare to WWVB?

What sort of receiver do I need?  Any good how-to type web pages?

I'm in Silicon Valley.  The NIST map says that WWVB should work here, but my 
quick try didn't get very far.  I was just using a small ferrite antenna and 
I didn't check the tuning.
