I think this was the same person that developed the arduino ref 0
standalone controller that was shared with time nuts. Essentially it faked
the ref 0 out and you could use any external GPS receiver tick to drive the
I tested numbers of arduinos. They all worked.

But your right he then moved on to building a internal GPS receiver and
though he built boards they were never completed or offered as I recall.
