I don't have that kind of cash, and thought that I might be able to use it (not realizing that it has an epoch issue).

I've had the old NTS-100 for many years, at one point in time, possibly 
Y2K, I needed to upgrade the firmware.

Talk to Symmetricom! Even though quite a few of the original TrueTime 
people have left, they still seem like a good company, and they might 
still have your missing firmware update available.

 From very fuzzy memory, ISTR that you need to swap out a pair of EPROM 
devices. :-)
