Will do. The point about the hour pips is fascinating and useful. I
measured two brand new 880 Hz tuning forks the other day, they were
both 10 Hz out! I was about to start blaming the equipment when a
third, older fork was produced that measured to within 0.1Hz. I think
MSF Rugby transmits a reference tone of very precise frequency also,
I forget the details.
