Not certain, but I suspect it is the difference between time in siderial
seconds and UTC (atomic) seconds and we are coming up on a leap second,
so GPS_UTC_offset will change.

        Correction: that should be 967,887,927 nanoseconds.

        Asunto: [opendtv] Two (hopefully tough) trivia questions

         

        I probably won't be able to answer both these questions until
early next week, but here goes:

         

        1)                   What is the significance of 967,887,927
picoseconds?

        2)                   How will that figure become even more
significant in the near future?

         

        And, I've checked - this one doesn't seem - at this point to be
solvable via Google.  I can give one hint: the figure is relevant to
digital television.
