Did you replace the crystal?

I suspect you'd need to ask PHK.  NTPns supports pps-api and it supposrts
ntpv4 as a time source so there's hope but the a quick look at the driver
specifics suggests  that pps may not work without one of the two device
sources working.  I don't think you need an Oncore but you would need a
minimum set of Motorola binary messages.  Maybe you have a compatible
Synergy device?
