Event marker inputs are not that uncommon. Sure, you can timetag an
external 1PPS, but they are not restricted to 1PPS input signals.
Most geodetic L1/L2 receivers have event maker inputs, many high
quality L1 receivers as well. The Trimble Acutime/Palisade timing
receivers also does this, actually the palisade ntp driver use this
feature instead of the normal 1PPS out.
