Fellow time-trackers,

	I found myself having to replace our network time server this weekend,
specifically with a "new"/used Symmetricom TS2100 'TymServe' unit.

	When I first got the 2100, it had the week rollover problem, of course.
However, some creative web searching led me to this site:
http://www.heoldesign.com/

	More specifically, it led me to this product:

http://www.heoldesign.com/N024-GPS-receiver-board-for-Tymserve-2100

	Normally priced at just under USD $180, I got lucky and got mine on
sale for about $132 (works out to 120 Euro). This board was, quite
literally, a drop-in replacement for the original. Four screws out,
unplug the antenna, plop the new board in and power up. About 40 seconds
later, it started tracking and registered the correct time/date. A
couple of minutes later, the disciplined oscillator output locked on.

	I would not hesitate to recommend Heol as a source if anyone else has a
rollover-wonky 2100. They also make a drop-in replacement for the
Trimble Lassen and ACE series.

	Did I mention outstanding customer service?

	Keep the peace(es).
