[time-nuts] How do I know my GPS stabilized oscillator is working?

Many thanks, Glenn.
I should have known what LPRO and UT+ were.
For a good time, ask Google for TVB-DIV, without quotes.
One hit says it's a gnu compiler error, another hit comes
from a crypto group.
I have a need for a decade divider from 10 MHz to 1 MHz.
Considered using the HP regenerative divider scheme, but
haven't gotten around to it. You triple the 1 MHz to 3,
triple again to 9, mix it with the 10 MHz input and
extract 1 MHz to be tripled, etc. Or use a ringing 9 MHz
tank hit with a 1 MHz pulse, which you can do when the
frequency comes from a standard.

The LPRO is a Rubidium oscillator from Efratom, now Symmetricom.
UT+ is the Motorola Onocore UT+ GPS reciever.
TVB-DIV is a frequency divider, designed by TVB, built by Brooke Clarke.
Still in prototyping, but works pretty well.
A "nice box" is a jewel box we got at a local art gallery:
which happens to be the perfect size to fix the LPRO, UT+, TVB-DIV and an
interface board. (Hopefully, I'll be able to work out any thermal
