That would be an interesting experiment.  Hmmm ...

I suppose we can presume that the 10811 tempco wasn't good enough
for the requirements for the Z3801A, given that in that application
the 10811 was placed inside of another oven.

I now have both a Z3801A and a Z3815A w/E1938A.  But I
haven't yet compared them head to head.

Tom: I presume the Z3801A is included in your GPSDO comparison
project.  Is the Z3815A included, too?  What's your status?
