感谢!thank you!我的三星STP 2878 LF已经可以正常显示了!之前5.0是不能正常显示的。
我把HEATHER6.14与5.0的放在一个压缩包内,以方便他人直接下载使用,再次感谢EEVblog电子社区论坛。
我英语很差,网页是通过翻译过来的,所以抱歉不能以英语交流,给朋友们带来不便了。

Hi,
thanks for adding Trueposition gpsdo to Heather.  I have made some modification to the source code to make the experience better. I am attaching diff for these changes.

1. initialization. There are 3 cases that need to be addressed:
- GPSDO is started in boot mode. In this case you need to send "$PROCEED" wait 1/2-1second, and then send initialization commands ($PPSDBG, etc)
- GPSDO is already started and tracking, in this case you just need to send initialization commands ($PPSDBG, etc.)
- Heather is started BEFORE GPSDO is powered on, in this case heather will notice BOOT GETVER response - needs proceed and then later initialization commands.

So i have moved the initialization commands to single function that gets called twice. Once for BOOT response and once in receiver initialization.

This function will send PROCEED wait 1000ms and send initialization commands. PROCEED command doesn't exist in main program. If gpsdo was already initialized, it is bacically nop (with wait).

2. Initialization command $PPSDBG needs parameter.
Parameter 1 = enable, parameter 0 = disable. The command parser in this GPSDO is dumb, it will look at fixed place for the character '1', if not enough characters it will just use character from LAST message.

3.  EXTSTATUS:
this response contains data copied from NMEA message $GPGGA, number of sats used and DOP (Hdop in 2d fix mode, and PDOP in 3d fix mode) as provided by Furuno module.
temperature is not taken from this message anymore.

4. PPSDBG:
Temperature is taken from this response.
This response also contains TRAIM information as provided in Furuno's GPrrm message. I have added parsing/displaying for these stats as well.

5. UPDATE FLASH command doesn't exist.
This is not command but response that GPSDO has written flash. I have commented this out. Not needed. Whenever you update nonvolatile parameters they get saved into Flash memory.

I have reverse engineered the firmware of the MCU used in the GPSDO and i have tried to fix available documentation:
https://github.com/robots/trueposctrl/blob/master/GPSDO_commandset.h
Some commands are still not added: like Jam sync ($JAM, without parameter). There are lot of interesting commands like: $SPIW x - write dac, $FxRxxH - toggle holdover, $F - send command to gps receiver, "$EBG *" - monitor gps messages.

Trying to track down if Lady Heather can work with a Spectracom 8195A. Is there any plan for these to be added?

I have two of that...

Beta version works.  Before you ask how to get beta version, look at the very beginning of this thread, please!

@texaspyro The download link in the first post doesn't seem to work, is there another location to get the v6 beta source?

Are you sure it doesn't work?  You need to install the regular version then overwrite the exe with exe from the zip file.

I've been wondering when LH V6 will go "gold".  I have been using it so long and successfully, I forgot it's a beta.

I mean that the download link itself is broken. I cannot download v6 at all.

EDIT: It would appear that tinyupload.com itself is broken. I cannot access it at all from multiple connections.

You are right.  That URL is non-responsive.

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 (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
