What commands were you trying to send that you got "gps engine busy"???

IIRC, some of the commands never got implemented. I'll fire one of mine
up today and experiment with it to see what kind of output I get when
it's not tracking anything and such.

If the clone receiver is crazy expensive, contact me off-list, I might
have an ACE-II or ACE-III receiver I can find for you.

A while back I even tried an old SveeSix receiver and those work too in
the TS2100.
