Some old modems will happily decode it for you. I compared it to
NTP at some point last year. The time stamp was only given to the
nearest minute, and for my exchange it was pretty terrible - it was
slow by about 90s for a few months. I was considering adding it to
my leap second measurements, but there didn't seem to be much point.
