Yes for sure, I have tidied it up, 3 stratum 1 servers and all the other baggage cleared.

Re your comment about comments:

A macro is defined:
#define ISEOL(c)        ((c) == '#' || (c) == '\n' || (c) == '\0')

And then
                (const char*)tokenlist[0] = keywords[prop_index].text;
                for (ntok = 1; ntok < MAXTOKENS; ntok++) {
                        tokenlist[ntok] = tokens;
                        while (!ISEOL(*tokens) && (!ISSPACE(*tokens) || quoted))
                                quoted ^= (*tokens++ == '"');

                        if (ISEOL(*tokens)) {
                                *tokens = '\0';
                        } else {                /* must be space */
                                *tokens++ = '\0';
                                while (ISSPACE(*tokens))
                                if (ISEOL(*tokens))

So it seems the code stops processing the value for the property when a # is seen.

However, a clean config is a happy config ;)

I dug out a really old Rockwell Jupiter rx and got it working. I will see if I can get the rockwell refclock and PPS happening until my sure arrives.

I am also going to pull the HP antenna down, and look at replacing the module <grin> is anyone interested in photos of the guts?

Many thanks,

If you are referring to my comments, I was suggesting that you remove all but the minimum essential lines for running your GPS/PPS device.
