Interesting thread.
I guess I would look at things a bit differently.
Most of the IRIG clocks have nice displays and perhaps its a case of
hacking a device take you pick into those fine displays.
I have a really nice 3 RU bright clock that if the brains die thats what I
will do. Its a pretty easy task.
Currently it is being driven by a GPS module + processor jamming time into
Evertz LTC generator.
Its been working for some 20 years this way.
Regards
Paul
