GPS Time Sync Software for Windows OS

Hello Operators.

I received a question on my #oh8stn Facebook page, about GPS time sync software for Windows OS. I really didn’t know the answer to the question, but that wasn’t the end of the story. I know there’s lots of skills, experience, and no-how in our little community. So I reached out and asked the community for help. Here’s the original question, followed by the answers:

Hi I would like to know which software do you use to synchronize the PC clock with your USB GPS? Thank you 73 de IZ1LIA

From Mark M0IAX – I put nmeatime2 on my windows machines. It’s not free but it did work (I don’t use Windows often) https://www.visualgps.net/#nmeatime2-content

So I think it’s absolutely magnificent that we can come together as a community, to help each other. The channel and blog, our social media feeds are all tools. It’s not about me, it’s about building a community of skilled and knowledgeable operators. It might not seem like a big deal, but this is the perfect example of that.
