[Today’s run: 3.5 miles]

My ebay purchase GPS antenna has arrived and I think I’m getting the gpsdo back on track.

I had to download some old Windows-based software to check out the GPS itself and see
how it was doing. And I also booted up an ancient laptop which I had previously used
to gather data from the gpsdo. It looks like I last used it in 2014.

Everything seems to be working and the gps is seeing the antenna and the oscillator
is adjusting to peak performance.

I’m not sure if the issue was antenna or not. So I may end up taking the lid off and
seeing if any of my power supplies or other integrated parts are having trouble.

I did notice that the keyboard on the old IBM Thinkpad laptop is really nice. (I’m talking about the
old old Thinkpad, not the newer Thinkpad.) It’s a mechanical
keyboard. It would be nice using that keyboard for my regular work if I could figure
out how to extract it from the laptop.
