I'm happy to give you my BBB and custom made gps cape for it if you want to
continue the work.  I stopped all work right about the time I got married
(2 years ago) and likely will never circle back around to play with it

It uses a Furuno GT-8736 timing receiver and I had it working with NTP
pretty easily.  I'll try to dig it out and get into it and get it ticking
again before mailing it to you if you are interested in it.

Here are some plots I made before pulling the plug the last time:
