Be sure to read what the article says the systems delivers for output
stability before you decide to build it. It disciplines an inexpensive
(not OCXO) with very short averaging times, with a GPS navigation receiver,
not a timing receiver.
It is good enough to set the time base in your HF rig to a fraction
of a Hertz, but not much more accurate than that.

As near as I can tell, the publishers actually E-mail you a download link once they finish processing on their end, yes? If that's the case, I'm guessing I won't see the download code until, say, Monday?
