Have a bunch of old Austron manuals left but unfortunately can't help you on
that one.

Good luck!

	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....
