Curious about GPS satellite messages sent to the earth

- 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,
