    the disciplined oscillator looks interesting. thanks for the link.

    the OXCO will still have to be calibrated if it is to be used as a reference.

    Thats a lot of zero's. Although, the seller does not mention if they calibrate prior to shipping. I'll have to contact and find out about that.

    Found another. "10MHz OCXO Frequency Standard Module or Kit". Around $100 and calibrated to a rubidium standard.

    i bought one of those cheap OXCOs from China with the intention of turning it into a freq standard, but haven't found the time to get it done yet.

    From what i have read, they actually get more stable over time, so if you buy a used one and have it calibrated, then you have a pretty solid reference you can use for a while.

    here is a cool video from good ol' aussie Dave that i like to show people when talking about oscillators:


    take that flat earthers! LOL
