You get sixty bits, one per second in each minute, to code everything. Right now each
minute is separate, but coded so you can compare one minute to the next. In
principle, you don't need a checksum, since you have a built-in majority
decoder capability. Heath insists that two frames (minutes) in ten be identical
to achieve lock. You can do much better than this, even without changing the
format, with a little imagination and spare microprocessor cycles.
