I don't know if this related or not but my Z3816A (with Symmetricom SatStat) is displaying the proper time but a date of 12 Sep 2035, tracking PRN 1, 7, 17, 19, 28 and 30.

My TBolt (with Lady Heather) is displaying proper time and date, tracking 1, 7, 11, 17, 19, 28 and 30

I 'cycled' power on the Z3816A but it came up with the same erroneous date again.  TFOM is 3 and FFOM is 0.

I'm going to open the unit, remove the 'back up' battery and let it 'rediscover' itself and see what happens.  I tried to set the date via command but no joy.

Presumably, each rx would be affected when it added one or more corrupted satellites to the constellation it was using for its solution.  Since each rx makes those decisions independently, one would not expect them to exhibit problems in exact synchrony.
