Digging a bit further, it seems that the time signal out of GOES
will not be eliminated, but the accuracy will degrade to the
millisecond regime, according to this url:
I've a WWVB clock that seems to swing in the units of milliseconds,
so GOES, even degraded, seems comparable.
GOES is dead, long live goes?
