Unfortunately sometime FG GPS start continues reporting of the same date. The only way to fix this problem is GPS power cycling and ntpd restart after GPS power-up.
After Jan,10 2000 my FG GPS unit start send a wrong answer after 10:00am till 11:00am. It repeat hour value in result string twice. I wroite a small code to avoid such problem. Unfortunately I have no second FG GPS unit to evaluate this problem. Please let me know if your GPS has no problems after Y2K.
Each timecode is written to the clockstats file in the format YYYY YD HH MI SS.
