Re: Time standard for wsjt modes


 

Better to use ntp. Figure out why it isn't working.  Better yet tie it to GPS for better accuracy.

Maybe your router settings do not like Network Time Protocol (ntp).

To disable ntp and manually update the time instead:
'sudo update-services ntpd disable'
and then
'sudo apt-get install ntpdate'.

Then you can update the date and time manually with
'sudo ntpdate'
or you can specify a timeserver like
'sudo ntpdate pool.ntp.org'

To set the time at boot, add 'ntpdate' to rc.local.
If you want automatic updates, you could add 'ntpdate' as a cron job.
