    Just get an atomic watch. Mine is always accurate.

    Time difference zip point naught 15 hours later between D4 on the PC and time on the mobile.

    Hm, that construction seems to work only on a flat earth that takes 12 hours for one rotation instead of 24.

    Or is there a hidden joke that I don't get?

    Well, you can’t use it at night.

    It works with software in your computer to change your clock. See:

    Maybe this could be done by the FT8 software itself. Today there were about 30 signals on 20m, most of them with less than 1s offset. I think you get a good time synchronization by calculating some mean value from the received offsets and adjust your time accordingly.

    My computer syncs to my cell phone using a WiFi connection.

    Seems that would be the easiest if you have a smart phone.

    There is also CHU - among WWV's and CHU's frequencies I usually find one I can copy well enough to get the time.
