[time-nuts] TBolt question

I cannot answer exactly this question, but I was told by the Trimble sales
manager that somewhere along the lines (probably around 2000), the Tbolt
software was revised with the main goal of removing a lot of the lower level
settings and adjustments capabilites because too many customers were messing
with what they were not supposed to and rendered their Tbolt useless,
creating lots of service calls.

Unfortunately, he could not tell me which commands were affected, these
changes are not reflected in the Tbolt manual, and I do not know at what
revision that change was made.

So, in that regard, a pre-2000 unit might be more suitable to tinkerers who
know what they are doing :-) such as changing the OCXO or using the Tbolt to
control an Rb standard instead of an OCXO.
