Thanks.  Any chance there is a command that displays some info about the status of the 10 MHz ref signal?

UPDATED:  to version 6.14 Beta. 
Thanks!

I try compile it on Raspbian ARMv6 (Raspberry Pi Zero W), all works fine. :-+
Now i can run Lady's on RP and turn off my main PC. 8) RP Zero W have very low power consumption, without any noise!
CPU load with VNC is high 50-90%, but it works stable.

Hi is possible to have a iso of Sd card for use on Raspberry ? I am not be able to compile the the image....
Thank you very much

No, unless you have a TICC or counter connected.

I have a really odd situation.  (long story short), LH successfully finds match on serial speed, parity, mode, etc. and successfully talks.  How can I find out what the "match" LH found?

When the auto-detect is doing its thing,  the setting it tries is at the top of the screen.  Also the !p keyboard command should show it.

Thank you SIR!  You just saved me tons of time!

Yes, I know it shows the progress but it was too fast for me to read.  !p worked.

Now I have two GPSDO connected to a same PC.  I wonder if you'd entertain an idea that where it says TBOLT-"C:\Program, replace it with a custom string? 

Looking at a graph, it's impossible to tell which GPS unit I'm looking at.  I know I can set a "brand name" on Analog clock, but I'd rather see it up top.

/pt=string    -  will set a user defined title ('-' chars convert to spaces).
/pt - uses the receiver type and .exe file name as the title.

Do you have any plan to support Spectracom 8195B?  The protocol seems to be proprietary.

Hi I'm trying to use Lady Heather with my GPSDO ZYT GPSDO 2019, internally it's a Symmetricom with FURUNO GT-8031T receiver.
The program correctly recognizes the UCCM protocol and apparently seems to work correctly, but after a few hours of use the system freezes and I have to turn the GPSDO off and on again and then restart the program.
Does anyone have experience with this?
Can it be a configuration problem ??
Thank you
Fabrizio

I've been playing with Lady Heather and an old Magellen Explorist 210. I wanted to see how good I could do with elevation, given some averaging. It's not bad, but some other interesting things showed up. The most interesting is that the reported time can be off quite a bit. Apparently, the 210 has some internal quirks where the time isn't updated properly, and it can drift off by many seconds over time. Only a full reset can get it back in sync. I've seen it off by up to 15 seconds in the past. I think the error is also reflected in Lady Heather, but haven't proven it yet. There's also some timing problem, as I get continuous red tics on the chart. Not sure why, but the legend for the chart always gives the elevation in meters, but labels it as feet.

Of all the inexpensive modules on the 'bay, can anyone suggest something troublefree that I can eventually set up as a GPSDO of decent quality? At the moment I'm a bit lost in the woods because there are so many options.

Conrad,

I would recommend this unit.  The 8663 OCXO is top notch and the Star 4 GPS plays well with LH.

I'm looking for v6.15 or later for Linux. I have found v5 (https://github.com/jkingan/ladyheather) but it doesn't recognize my Samsung UCCM-LP GPSDO.

Check the first post.  V6.14 is the latest public release.

Downloaded 16.14 in Xubuntu
unzipped to folder
make clean
make
Compiled without error and worked great - I already had dependencies installed (readme.txt)
However every time I started it (./heather) is failed opening com port.
Problem was permissions. You have to add user to dialout group with..
sudo adduser <username> dialout
Great job - much more responsive than Windows - not sure why!

I have the same model but I haven't been able to figure out what commands would produce the chA ADEV, HDEV, MDEV, and TDEV tables, or the corresponding graphics (as shown in the seller's eBay photo below).  Also, I haven't been able to figure out what command would show anything about the specific frequency the GPSDO is outputting somewhere around 10 MHz.  Any suggestions on how to invoke these features in LH would be appreciated.  Thx

That screen dump was from a TAPR TICC time interval counter.

Hello texaspyro

would it be possible to add support for the Tekelec-Systems/Spectracom Epsilon Clock Model EC1S? It is not recognized by the current beta.
Its User manual is found here:
https://www.orolia.com/documents/users-manual-epsilon-clock-model-ec1s

From its look from the backside, the build in GPS receiver, should be a Motorola M12 Oncore.

Best regards
bnz

Now tested with Raspbian Buster 10 (ARMv7) (Raspberry Pi 3B+)
All work's fine.

I have this and it is running well. However the manual is a bit cryptic.

I want the clock display to show satellite signal strength vs angle -- like this -- but I can't figure out how to do it.

What is the command line and screen options for this ? I have tried things like 'SAS' but that doesn't work.

Try the GB command... it toggles enabling of drawing maps, etc to the right of  the plot area.

I had mine for about almost a year now.   No problems with it yet.   I do noticed the sellers picture of the square wave and wonder what magical scope he has.
This is what I see when terminated with 50ohm tapping the square wave pin.

you should also reduce the number of samples to 250/s and use the 1Hz output.

with best regards
