Thanks. I do this stuff for fun and to keep my brain sharp. But I also like to share knowledge. Speaking of PDP-11's, I found some hard disk packs at the recycling center when I volunteered there. The copper-colored platters go nicely with the shiny silver ones from smaller drives to make an interesting wind chime.
Just a heads up for folks using these modules. GPS signals are very weak so antenna quality and positioning are very critical. It's best to keep the antenna away from the electronics, pointed up and, if indoors, try placing it close to a window for better reception. There are better, but more expensive, GPS units if you want something for indoors. The Ublox ones are meant to be used outdoors with things like drones.

It looks like Forstner bits would be perfect for this job. I have a set but will have to wait until warmer weather to try it. My woodworking tools are in an unheated garage. You could also make the cubes by gluing thinner pieces of different kinds of wood together (like oak and walnut).
You are welcome.
You are welcome. Glad it helped.
Thank you for the kind words. For the most part I build these things just for fun but I have a strong belief in sharing what I learn.
Congratulations on your success! I do these little projects mostly for fun and for my own education but I write them up just in case someone else wants or needs to learn. I'm glad that you found it useful.
Ok, no help from the Instructables staff so let me help them do their job. Today the delete button mysteriously showed up again under the "More" button Problem solved with getting rid of the unwanted drafts.As for the original problem, it still exists with Win10/IE11. Worked perfectly with Win7/IE11 7 months ago. The copy/paste does work as expected if I use either Firefox or Chrome. Haven't tried using Edge because I don't like it at all.
I just tried compiling with the latest version of MPLAB (3.35) and assembler (mpasm) version 5.68. It worked fine. If you are not using those versions I recommend that you upgrade. You could delete the line "MAIN CODE". That would make sure that all code stays on page 0.
No bother. I'm glad you found a solution.
Thanks for the comment. What we are actually measuring is the entire pulse width so falling edge (start of bit) to falling edge (start of next bit) fulfills that requirement. Can't have the second falling edge without a rising edge somewhere in between. If this was intended for a precision IR communications system then more stringent measuring methods would certainly be in order.
