Hi Keith:

A lot depends on what you're trying to do. 

Do you already have a counter that will make time interval measurements 
and if so with a lot of averaging what's the smallest time interval you 
can see?  Do you already have frequency standard(s) and just want to use 
GPS to check on them or discipline them?  The features of the TAC may or 
may not be a good fit to your needs.  Can you elaborate on your goals / 
interests / etc.?

Have Fun,

Brooke Clarke
