The Chinese GPS is not bad and the price is only about $35
But for not much more money you can get a nearly state of the art unit
that is made and supported by a US company.
Synergy will selll you an M12M Timing GPS Receiver for about $60.
Look at the specs on the PDF sheet. This is gross overkill for NTP
but some people use GPS for other purposes
You can get older M12+T units from eBay for about $30 but the much
better performance, US based tech suport, warenty and better
documentation is maybe worth the price.
