I'd be interested in that once you have done the updates.

That was all I really wanted - to know whether or not the receiver was getting a decent signal, rather 
than to know the exact time and where I am. If its possible to estimate jitter on the 1pps signal that 
would be nice, but I'm sure I could look at adding that myself.

Unfortunatly, I'm not a perl guru. Much prefer C, but I'm willing to give anything a try - as long as 
it doee not need Windows.
