The importance of cable delay depends on what you are doing with the time.
If you are taking data in remote locations with different GPS receivers,
then cable delay is necessary to correlate the results in time. See the
recent mail on FTL neutrinos.

If you are being NTP Stratum 0 to one network (please don't assert NTP
Stratum 0 to the Internet with a rig put together from eBay parts), then
the cable delay is a miniscule phase shift between you and reality.

Wow. Okay. The user manual actual considers this cable delay to be worth
mention?

I can see why the trimble thunderbolt is a favorite among time nuts <3

I'm sold.
