Summary: talking to an atomic clock

This is a short note summarizing all the quick and useful help I received
to a question I posed last Friday: "How can I talk to a Heathkit atomic
clock via a serial line?"

I did receive a few ways to tell the clock to raise RTS, and these did
do the trick. The most frequent (and the method I am now using) suggestion
was to install NTP (Network Time Protocol). I did recall Wm. LeFebvre's
recent message about it (~3 weeks ago), but apparently selective memory
won out.

I have now installed NTP and am able to sync up all machines with no
worries (so far). Thank you to all who responded with help:
