Using Garmin 18 and SURE for two of those will leave you nearly $900 for 
the last clock, so that is obviously doable. :-)

If you pick up a Motorola Oncore UT+ as the last clock you'll have a 
proven extremely good reference (15-25 ns RMS offset from true UTC?) and 
still end up with maybe $800 in your pocket.
