What is the full model of your receiver? If you click on the receiver ID in
winoncore it should give you something similar to:
COPYRIGHT 1991-1997 MOTOROLA INC.
SFTW P/N # 98-P36830P
SOFTWARE VER # 10
SOFTWARE REV # 0
SOFTWARE DATE 24 Sep 1997
MODEL # B8221Z1116
HDWR P/N # _
SERIAL # E003SA
MANUFACTUR DATE 8M03
OPTIONS LIST IBC

B: Basic "plain vanilla receiver"
C: Carrier phase

specification for PPS so I would guess that means it doesn't have that
