The OSC AGE ALARM is a minor alarm that indicates the oscillator control voltage is near its minimum or maximum value. The manual indicates that if this happens the oscillator will probably be at its control limit within two years. The tbolt firmware does not attempt to estimate the oscillator aging rate. The alarm is based only upon the control voltage value.
Once the oscillator control voltage reaches its limit, the major OSC: BAD alarm is signaled.
