[time-nuts] How To Remove Bar Blocking PCBs in Austron 2100T Timing Receiver?

I figured it out.  After loosening the screw you need to press the 
smaller block sideways, then the larger block falls over.
But after cycling all the PCBs, this A1 (new) condition code receiver 
still shows a status message of "--EE---E" where the last "E" means not 
tracking, although the Tracking LED is constantly on (red).

Also at power up the RAM check (E1002048) and EPROM check (E-20) are 
normal, but the Time Of Day does not display and instead the above 
status message appears.  I have and antenna, and 1 MHz input (and have 
set the switch to 1 Mhz).

Am I missing something?

Have Fun,

PS I think I have the C field set to within 1 small click on the 
FTS-4060/S24.  Maybe to within 1E-14, but need more time to know.
