I'll add mine to the list in case it is of value to anyone.
My Z3816A started tracking PRN 32 yesterday. It uses a UT+ receiver.
SFTW P/N 98-P36848P
SOFTWARE VER 3
SOFTWARE REV 1
SOFTWARE DATE may 28 1999
From messages posted here a while back, this isn't the best or last
firmware version. As I recall the problems had to do with 10kHz output
but I have never noticed anything weird in the operation of the 3816a.
So that version of UT code works for me and picked up 32 yesterday and
I issued the command :gps:sat:trac:incl? through the serial port on the
HP unit and it returned a list with all the numbers from +1, ..., +32 ,
so it is ready for all of them. I think that should work for z3801a and up.
