Locked Re: [WSJTXst] Satellite latency #NewUser

Kenneth Holcombe

Hey Bill,
If I have the latest Windows 10 update, do I still need to install a program to keep the time accurate? I bought a TS-480 and use HRD DeLuxe, so goodbye Mac computer.

Is anyone using Satellite internet with WSJTX and does the latency affect the timing sync with Meinberg etc?
Hi Bobby,

satellite Internet links often have very different transit times for up and downlinks, this characteristic will impact the accuracy of NTP time sync as NTP make the assumption that it can half the round-trip transit time to get the one-way transit time. If you are on the latest Windows 10 update there are some tools to measure this.
