He did say a "timing receiver". That could mean a GPS receiver
specifically set up to supply time, including an on board temp
insensitive crystal to supply the time if the sattelite availability
goes to low. 
Also it is $42 since you need to receive it, unless you happen to be
visiting Hong Kong. 
And then you have to solder a few wires onto surface mount pins.
