What type of GPS receiver are you using?

It looks like you are running version 5.0 of LH.
The latest version, that I know of, is version 6.14. See below for the link.

Edit: Was original seeking the source code. A closer read of the thread lead me to @dwholland's github repo https://github.com/zzqzzqzzq/lady_heather_splunk (https://github.com/zzqzzqzzq/lady_heather_splunk) (thanks!)

I am not interested in his splunk modifications, but was able to roll back to what looks like the originally distributed 6.14 source code in an early commit.

I've posted it at http://gotroot.ca/misc/heatherx11_beta_6.14.zip (http://gotroot.ca/misc/heatherx11_beta_6.14.zip)

LH is looking at COM2.  If you start some kind of terminal program and read off COM2, do you see series of lines?  Try 4800 bps and 9600 bps.  What kind of GPS is this?  Often, you have to tell it what it is, although LH will do its best to try to auto-determine it.

I think COM is configured right, Trimble part numer from this board is shown (57964-60).
Maybe you can show the command line you are using, there must be something wrong with it.

the top one is 6.14 the lower one is 5.0.

it is communicating fine. this is a GPSDO it is a 10Mhz Freq standard that locks to the GPS sats to lock a 10mhz OCXO Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillator.
it finds a UCCM receiver when loading up Lady Heather

Hterm (https://www.heise.de/download/product/hterm-53283/download) is my terminal tool of choice for stuff like this.
