Hi Guys :)
I thought I’d say thanks for the add to the group and introduce myself.

I have a question…
Is the reason most amateur radio people care about accurate frequency mostly 
about
operating at higher radio frequencies?
I imagine if a bunch of radio enthusiasts aligned their HF radios with 
atomic standards for use
on those bands that doppler shift would ruin everything the additional 
hardware put into it.
Cheers, Brek.
=============================

Welcome, Brek!

It isn't just frequency, but time as well.  There are some modes where the 
time needs to be known to within about 1/10 second, which can be easily 
achieved running NTP on Windows PCs.  Having a local GPS-locked stratum-1 
server based on a PC (Windows or Linux) or Raspberry Pi makes this 
independent of needing an Internet connection - e.g. for field work.

Cheers,
David
