	Speaking of things Austron I have a ham friend in the Dallas
area who has an Austron 2200 Loran/GPS time and frequency box with 
rubidium  oscillator for which  he needs a manual with schematics.   He
also needs (more desperately) a set of EPROM images (he can burn EPROMS)
for the control processor and maybe the GPS receiver as the set he has
has bad bits in the Loran control program and does not seem to work for
GPS either (there may be a date rollover fix needed).

	He is currently just using the rubidium as offset by whatever
was left as a frequency correction in the EEPROM, but it would really be
nice to try to get the whole thing working if possible.   He thinks the
GPS possibly works when hooked to an antenna and knows the rubidium
works, so probably the problem is mostly the garbled EPROM contents
(and a lack of documentation of the setup procedures).

	Any leads would be appreciated....
