I just got through poking at a couple of TBolts with Lady Heather. It appears that you can indeed get the hardware and software to put the TBolt into single satellite mode. That may enable a pretty simple GPS common view setup.
One way to do it:
Somebody picks a set of sats and times that make sense. Since the constellation repeats it's going to be a fairly simple table of this sat / that time.
At those times they run their TBolt against something pretty good and log the results
The logs get put on a site somewhere
Somebody else wants to do a comparison. They set up to monitor the same satellite at the same time.
They log the data.
They download the posted data.
They run the math on the data, out comes a time comparison between the two locations.
Should be fairly simple to try out.
Anybody with a good house standard want to give it a try?
