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
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.
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.
