GOES was a time service received from a handful of weather satellites;
while the antenna looks GPS-like, it's not a GPS. Unfortunately, the
GOES time service was turned off a while (maybe 18 months?) ago. While
there are sporadic reports of people receiving time from the satellites,
there is no traceability and any results are totally untrustworthy.
So, a neat box has turned into a paperweight...
