[time-freq] Recommendations for GPS clock receiver?

I believe that a Garmin GPS 15H-W will satisfy your needs.  In addition to
the NMEA standard sentences $GPGGA, $GPGSA, and $GPGSV, it also provides
$PGRMM, $PGRME, WAAS capability, and a 1PPS tick.  I am using this engine
right now in a device that provides a precise on-the-hour tone for a local
repeater.  It costs about $50 from GPSCity.com.  More info here:

Subject: [time-freq] Recommendations for GPS clock receiver?

I have lying around a working Reflock II and an Excaliber card from
TAPR/HPSDR. I also have the software and accessories to code for and program
the Reflock II. I think the basic thing I'm missing for a GPS Diciplined
Oscillator is then a GPS receiver with 1 PPS clock output and stationary
mode (I think that's what it's called). Does this make sense, and if so,
anyone have a recommendation for such a receiver? All the consumer grade
things I've seen so far don't let me get the clock. I had thought of going
with a Trimble Thunderbolt, but got burned on an Internet purchase of one.
If that's the way to go, is there anything newer/better/cheaper? Thanks.
