HFClock Pi Internet Based Clock System - Raspberry Pi Edition (Display Sold Separately)
The HFClockTM represents the industry’s first highly integrated clock designed for use by amateur radio operators. The HFClock Pi features Wi-Fi-based Internet connectivity and when paired with your choice of HDMI compatible Display can present numerous data points in real-time expressly for the amateur radio operator.
The clocks utilize the Network Time Protocol (NTP) which is intended to synchronize all participating computers to within a few milliseconds of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The protocol utilizes an algorithm to select accurate time servers and is designed to mitigate the effects of variable network latency. NTP can usually maintain time to within tens of milliseconds over the public Internet and can achieve better than one-millisecond accuracy in local area networks under ideal conditions.
Users simply configure the clock to connect to their Wi-Fi router, enter their call sign/name and a home position (DE), and select how they prefer units to be displayed, Imperial or Metric. Additionally, the user may optionally select a satellite to track in real-time. Once configured, the user may further customize colors to be used for their call sign or name. New firmware updates may be installed via Wi-Fi at the discretion of the user.
