Precision time novice needing help !   We have chance to upgrade 
(replace) our existing TS-2100-L with a TS2100-GPS system with the 
rubidium option.

What questions should we be asking the seller?
*    Is there a method to determine the lamp hours from the console?
*    Software vintage that corrects the 1PPS issue (or is it relevant)?

While InfoAge is a huge site, it is not a huge budget!
