Re: [chrony-users] Time synchronisation over a high-latency packet radio network

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

Is there any possibility of using GPS for time?  I had a similar dilemma on my raspberry pi based boat computer.  I didn't want to rely on internet provided time since it might not be available if away from the slip.

Stuart, Indeed very interesting...

Just curious, it appears you have native DNS, why do you need to proxy NTP over APRS (unless you use a similar technique for DNS).

BTW, at startup our project always steps the time using (8 second timeout would be too low for you):
chronyd -q -t 8 "server time.example.tld iburst"
before starting "chronyd" in the background. (no systemd).
