Hello Didier,

The Jupiter GPS receiver (if used in NMEA and not binary mode) has a known 
fault, that it can be 1 or 2 seconds delta to UTC, this is independent of 
the "leap-second" situation.

The 1pps is very good - but the NMEA time-marking is the big weakness in the 
Jupiter GPS.

Regards, Kiwi Geoff.
