Raspberry Pi NTP and GPS server

sbd sbd

If you want a GPS fed NTP server then this how to will get it mostly sorted on a Raspberry Pi. Best to use a Pi 3 and set the Pi for performance.

I am using a UPUTronics board with PPS and a decent antenna



Then add a NMEA port to your APRSISCE32 enter the IP address (static!) and port of 2947. Under configure ports.

Then enable GPS under enables.


You should then get a display of satellites on screen and a bar at the bottom showing the status of the satellites, with a quality reading, and the status of the satellite fix.

I don’t recall if APRSISCE32 will get the time from NTP on the Pi, Perhaps Lynn can comment.

Will add this to the WIKI if people want me to.
