Abstract: Measurements were made of the stability of time transfer by the IRIG-B code over a dedicated telephone link on Hydro-Québec's microwave system. The short-and tong-term Allan Variance was measured on both types of microwave system used by Hydro-Québec, one of which is synchronized, the other having free local oscillators. The results promise a time transfer accuracy of 10 us. The paper also describes a prototype slave clock designed to detect interference in the IRIG-B code to ensure local tiute is kept during such interference.
