I think this discussion started with somebody asking about the last few PPS
signals before the signal quality was declared to be no-good.
My guess is that they might be significantly in error. That's a systematic
error rather than a glitch that's easy to filter out.
Has anybody measured this? I'm thinking of something like setup a GPS unit
with a poor antenna and record the PPS times relative to a good house
standard as well as the RS-232 text that has the good/bad flag. Then eyeball
the samples around the time the flag changes.
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
