A double oven should be one oven inside another oven. To count as an oven,
you need a surface to heat, heaters, a temp sensor, and a controller.
Insulation also comes in handy. You can indeed to multi zone heaters, but
that's not the way a double oven works.
The enclosure in the MV89 pictures should be the outer oven. Inside that
there likely is another set of heaters and past that the crystal. The
enclosure appears to be soldered shut. Further investigation is likely to
trash the unit. Of course if somebody has one they hooked up backwards on

I have always thought the space inside the cover was the outer oven... now
I realize this is not quite correct but then the MV201, specified as a
double-oven, can't be a double-oven. The MV201 has the crystal under a sort
of Stonenge-like open structure: if this structure is the inner oven then
the outer oven must be the cover. If the cover is the cover then this
structure is the only oven and the MV201 can't be a double oven OCXO... I
have an MV201 open right now: can take pictures.
