Better Clock Syncronisation in native Windows XP

The WSPR 2 manual points out the importance of having your PC clock set accurately. Many operators apparently use third party utilities (eg Dimesion 4 for windows) to syncronise with an internet time service.

By default, windows XP is only aware of two time servers:

time.windows.com
time.nist.gov

and it only synchronises once a week.

Surely there is a better way?

Oh yes, there is!

I've been playing with the Windows registry and it turns out the Internet Time Server settings can be cranked up to be more useful...

See the attached text file for the HOWTO.
