Abstract:

Over the past couple of years, WSMR has made significant strides in modernizing its Timing System. WSMR has purchased a new Master Timing Generation System MTGS to replace a thirty-five year old system. Specifications were written and requirements contracts were developed for Timing distribution equipment which includes Synchronized Time Code Generators STGs, Versatile Timing Amplifiers VTAs, and distribution units. This paper will explain why particular designs were chosen, the significance of the MTGS in the WSMR Timing System, and the difficulties associated with implementing a modernization plan.
