Thanks to the good folks at Iowa Scaled Engineering, we had a session that was "On Time"


The master clock (above, left) and the displays (above, right) come together to make an excellent system. I got the wireless system, but they also have a wired system that uses CAT-5 cable to transfer the information. Take a look at their website at
