[time-nuts] Brooks Shera

Another great ham passes on, I'm sorry I never had a chance to meet him.

Is the GPS controller that Brooks published still useful today, or has it been
superseded by something newer? I have a Motorola GPS receiver (PVT-6) with 1
pps output, and an HP oscillator (model number escapes me at the moment). I
also have one of the $30 ebay rubidium modules (FE-5680A) that were discussed
here in previous years. I only need a controller to tie them all together.

Should I build Brooks' circuit to work with my old Motorola PVT-6 or should I
look for something else (perhaps one of the Jupiter receivers with 10 kHz
output)? The D/A chip in his design seems to be obsolete, his archived web
site says to contact him for the chip but we can't do that anymore. Are they
still available?
