BKTTimeSync supports it.

Note that you cannot use the FLex GPSDO for time sync. Has to be a USB GPS or similar.

I had a heck of a time running ft8 on my icom7100.  It was working until I went to a rear grid POTA.  Then nothing.  Not until I got home did I figure out that it was the time problem.  I ran the BktTimeSync program  and FT8 came alive.   Working DX with 100watts and little Tarheel on the RV. I need to get back to EM61 before the end of the year.

BKTTimeSync  looking at it. Where do you see it uses PPS?

My mistake. I don't really see it having that.

Unfortunately I have found that synchronizing a Windows computer with a GPS with PPS signal doesn't work well. Even with specialized software. for any printer issues you can visit the epson printer error code 0x97   and get the experts advice
