Of course. How silly of me. The stuff with the Pogo cartoons. I looked
at that stuff before I lost/bought-new/found the receiver.
Hmm. grep -i nema /usr/share/ntp=4.1.0/* gives nothing
grep -i pps /usr/share/ntp-4.1.0/* brings up a few items. refclock
mentions Pulses-per-second, pps describes some kernel options, release
mainly reefers back to the pps page. Maybe you meant NMEA? grep pulls
a few things. The GPS software mentions 'any fully compatible NMEA
receiver' or something like that. I think that means the generic NMEA
driver should produce something usable. Correct?
Guess the way to tell is put the receiver by a window, plug it in and
try it. I'll have to move some furniture...
By the way, the DeLorme web site mentions that their new USB version is
NMEA compliant, but does not say anything about the older serial
(It may have had more information originally, but I couldn't find it.)
