Clocks and watches--Design and construction
Since approximately February of 1979, the Speed School impulse clock system has not functioned due to a worn-out master clock that was never replaced because of a lack of fund. For this thesis project, a solid-state master clock that performs the same functions as the old mechanical master clock was built for less than $200. The new clock features accuracy traceable to the National Bureau of Standards, automatic reset after a power-down and subsequent power-up, and a daylight savings time provision. A decoder that recovers time information broadcast by radio station WWV from Fort Collins, Colorado was built and interfaced to the master clock to provide the accuracy traceable to the National Bureau of Standards.
