This is really very interesting - many thanks for sharing!

Just to be clear - I think the GPS modules are quite accurate as
standard, but the 20Hz version is one model, the version with highly
accurate PPS is a separate model and not known to put out a 20Hz PPS signal.

However, I agree that in principle given that the largest error should
be the pulse edge detection (and random measuring delay) then you
potentially have yourself an error which is largely gaussian and
additional datapoints are beneficial

Bill, is the GPS sawtooth not at a level of around the 10s of ns?
