GPS's have been around just long enough that we end up with extras.  Older ones we didn't want to spend the money to update the maps.  But you can use it in your shack to get very accurate time zulu.  Get a 5V wall wort with a small USB plug and use it to power and charge the GPS.  Assuming it can hear the GPS satellites, you can go to a screen with a clock.  On the screen that says "Where to" and "view map" pick "tools", then hit the down arrow to get to "world clock".  Hit that, and you'll see a clock of your time zone plus digital time of 3 cities.  Okay, go back to "tools" and pick "settings"  and then "time".  hit "12 hour" and then select "UTC".  Then go back to world clock, and you'll see time zulu as digits.  Only thing, the analog clockface still shows 12 hours...   Embarrassed    This should work worldwide.  Not like those 60KHz atomic clocks.
