My suggestion is that you pick up a free evaluation copy of Rick
Hambly's TAC32 software at http://cnssys.com/cnsclock/Tac32Software.html
. TAC32 knows all the quirks & options that ever existed in a Motorola
receiver, going all the way back to the Rev.3 PVT6. Then if you find it
useful, a legal copy can be purchased from Rick, or at members discount
from TAPR (http://www.tapr.org/gps_tac32.html).
