Not sure if I figured right but I calculated each second on the clock as covering about 3.5 longitudinal miles? So depending on how accurately the observer got his sunrise time correct, how accurately the listener noted it, and the phone delay, the margin of error could be rather large. Being 5 seconds off the exact time gives you 17 miles to search.
