We use CDMA and can keep time within a couple of microseconds. I am using
an EndRun Technologies CDMA clock which provides PPS, but the jitter on
the raw (TrueTime emulated) once a second update is about 4 ms at
worst. This sucks compared to the PPS, but should be good for most cases
where high precision is not an issue.

By the way, the external CDMA clock from EndRun is pretty well hidden on
the web pages under "Other Products". It is found at:
