The USB -> serial adapter I have is an Keyspan USA-19HS


I bought that one, as it was officially supported by Sun. I also have
another one somewhere - forget which model. Again that was officially
supported by Sun.

Both have worked for industrial control applications, whereas I gather
some cheap ones are only suitable for common consumer devices.

In any case, it will be more fun & educational to use the GPS
receiver. To be honest, I don't need great accuracy. I only bought the
unit as a frequency standard - the clock functionality is not
important to me, but if I can have a bit of fun playing around with
it, then I will.
