Thanks for your reply, Dave, and I take your point. You will find that
I have since updated my project page:
to describe the use of the GPIO 3.3V serial port. For NTP purposes, the
post is incomplete, as it does not have a conventional DCD input where
the PPS signal would normally be fed, but there is a work-round with a
GPIO PPS driver someone has written.
On a quick check at the moment, the Raspberry Pi shows a stratum-1
server reached over the LAN to have an offset of -0.028 milliseconds,
whereas its own PPS source is reported to have an offset of -0.001
milliseconds. Is that the right sign and amount for the offsets you
might expect comparing the LAN input and the GPIO pin interrupt for the
