How in the world can they call it a "timing receiver" if it doesn't even 
support sawtooth correction??  Good grief.

Also, I see they claim 6nS accuracy.  That is pretty much exactly 1/2 
cycle of the main clock frequency, so +/- 6nS should be the expected 
theoretical best possible error envelope WRT the quantization error, 
*assuming the receiver's timing solution is always perfect.*  Are we 
supposed to believe they achieve that accuracy in practice, despite all 
of the well-known sources of error in GPS timing solutions??

Best regards,
