USNO provides both voice announcements of the time, and services to synchronize systems over telephone modems.
The voice announcements have the same pattern at both sites, and always begin with the local time (daylight or standard). The local time announcements are made on the minute, and 15, 30, and 45 seconds after the minute. Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) is announced five seconds after the local time.
Time may be delayed on long distance calls.
