Ok, there is one GPS (with PPS out on a second output, going to GPIO 18 on the 
rpi)

I did a little change (commented out the two NMEA sources.

I am running gpsd for the GPS source.

It is a Dragino LoRaWAN/GPS hat.

As I mentioned, the GPS is functioning (what appears to me) correctly.

I will add refclocks logging right now.

I will most likely add a second GPS, or more probably, tie it into my Rubidium 
standard.

As for the PPS signal, ppstest /dev/pps0 give the expected output, finds the 
PPS signal, and is happy with it.

Chronyc sources just does not seem to recognize it.

Thank you!

Brian
