Arthur,

There is no "visual time indicator" in the release NTP software.  What 
software are you using?

- NTP here agrees with the local radio-derived time signals well within a 
fraction of a second.

- The NTP I derive from my GPS is within a few milliseconds of NTP I get 
off the Internet.

Cheers,
David
