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
No, I haven't replaced the crystal. I was hoping to see how well it worked
without. Would it work any better than the Raspberry Pi cards I am using
today (which seem considerably worse with the new tickless kernel than the
self-compiled non-tickless one I was using before)? Would it work better
than a server running Linux? The net4501 had a good reputation in its time.
The non-standard implementation of NTPns is putting me off. I can't use the
management tools I know and appreciate. No, I don't have Motorola binary
messages to hand, just standard NMEA. The NTPns is version 7.4, I believe.
Thanks to Mike to his observations on the driver - using stock NTP would be
easier except that as a Windows person I would be lost (or very slow and
incompetent) at building a NanoBSD image myself).
I was gifted the 4501, but I feel I may just gift it to someone who is
