No-no-no... i didn't tell ntpd or gpsd are wrong.. Sorry, if i said something like that, i have no enough practice in english communication to be confident i make right language constructions :)

I agree with you receivers are bad, i agree they receive wrong data or there are some problem in serial port or smth else

But. What i want to say is that this wrong situations make ntpd to do some changes to system time. And i want to simulate that situation. That's all. 

My system is ALT Linux 6.0.0 Centaurus  (Cheiron), 4.4.135-std-pae-alt1
