[time-nuts] Odetics 325: Replacing receiver...?

Hi Bruce,

The 325 came with different RX modules. Some of the earlier ones also used a
down converter on the antenna. 

What antenna are you using (is it the original?), what is the RX module? A
quick check to see if it is a down converter type is to check on the antenna
connector to see if you have 10 MHz on there, and also the voltage. I
believe these used a 12v supply, so trying the unit with a standard modern
antenna (typically 3.3 or 5V input) would result in antenna damage.

Odetics changed its name to Zyfer (I worked for them then), and then more
recently FEI-Zyfer. The 325 is obsolete and the guys in Anaheim do not offer
any support whatsoever now.

Time Nuts is your best bet for an answer, and I know that there are at least
two 325s lurking out there amongst fellow ' Nuts.

Good luck.

Hi, gang,

	I've recently become the proud owner of an Odetics/Kode 325 SatSync
clock, and am attempting to resurrect it. After a day's worth of effort, I'm
becoming suspicious of the receiver module (everything else seems to be OK).

	Are there any Odetics experts on the list? More specifically, I'm
wondering if anyone else has successfully replaced the receiver in one with
a more current module...?

	Thanks in advance.
