I can second that! In my previous post, I described what I did back in
the seventies to calibrate a 10 MHz oscillator against the local Loran-C
ch ain. However, the PRS-10, disciplined with the M12+ is what I use today.
You do need a good, stable 1 PPS signal to discipline the PRS-10. The
output of a WWVB receiver is NOT good enough -- the PRS-10 will ignore
any 1 PPS signal that has too much jitter.
