- Can someone tell me how often a given satellite broadcasts a packet of information?
- What does the packet contain besides the atomic clock time?  A satellite identifier?  Anything else?
- What does the data look like? Could someone please give me a sample?
- What are the units of time?  How many time units per second?
- Can I get a GPS chip to feed out all the data recieved from all satellites?

Anything else you can tell me would be appreciated.  I am very interested in this.

Thanks,

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
