In a majority of timing applications, a problem exists in setting two or more clocks to agree with one another. Present techniques using WWV or other HF broadcasts allow clocks to be synchronized within 1 msec. This paper describes a method which offers an improvement in synchronization of three orders of magnitude. Microsecond synchronization is obtained by use of the Loran-C navigation system as the link between a master clock at Boulder, Colorado and any slaved clock anywhere in the Loran-C service area. The timing system also includes a unique method for distribution of several time code formats on a single UHF channel.
