Some of the first time signals were striking clocks. Today time signals are used to provide accurate time all across the world. In the UK, examples of time signals are:
  • The dropping ball on the Greenwich Observatory, the first accurate time signal used throught the UK, and then the world
  • The pips on BBC Radio
  • Computer controlled signals such as NTP which are used to synchronise computers over networks and across the internet
  • Radio time signals, such as the MSF signal transmitted by the national physics laboratory from Anthorn, Cumbria
