NMEA devices are generally setup that way.

Oncores also support a binary mode.  

You might try ntpd.  Driver 30 talks to Oncores.  It puts stuff into 
clockstats and/or you can run it in debugging mode to get lots and lots of 
console printout.

The driver30 web page says it defaults to doing a site survey.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
