Abstract : The patent describes a passive method and equipment for synchronizing time systems, atomic or precision clocks, by transferring both time and frequency information. The time and frequency information are transmitted by a master station to remote stations which record the phase difference between the remote station's clock and that of the master thereby giving a very accurate measure of the time deviation between the station when the transmission delays are removed.
