I have a GPS disciplined Rubidium Standard. I know that it has a 1024
week problem. The engine was made by Trimble. They cannot locate any
information on this engine.
The time displayed is off by as much as 30 minutes in 24 hours. The
amount that the clock is off varies. The displayed frequency error
after cold power up on day 1 was 756 E-12. On day 2 it displayed 1256
E-9. I suspect that the Rubidium standard has a problem. The Rubidium
standard id an FRK.
What might be causing the problem with the time display? Could a bad
Rubidium lamp cause this?
