I ran into the same problem a few years ago.  I asked Symmetricom if the 
unit could be upgraded.  They said it could - for the low, low price of 
only $1135.

No, I didn't forget a decimal point in there.


One Thousand, One Hundred, and Thirty-Five Dollars!!

What planet are these people from??

I don't think I've powered the unit up since.
