[time-freq] motorola oncore not locking to the 1 pps

Hi Geert,

A couple more ideas. 

Perhaps visiting synergy-gps.com for a user guide or other information would be helpful.
Art (and his company) have been a good friend to hams for many years, I encourage all
to consider Synergy when buying OEM type gps hardware.

Also if you haven't done so already, I suggest confirming with an oscope or logic probe etc.
that your commands are actually getting out, and to the correct oncore pin. 

Best Regards,

  Hi Bobby,

  Thanks for your reply! I tried to find the version of the motorola but 
  no luck. The software doesnot show it and I don't know how to reveal.
  Yes I tried the command line option also. But it didnot work. Same 
  result. I guess the winoncore software is just a graphical user 
  interface to the commandline.

  Thanks anyway!
