Hi Tom, all,

Sorry, the D-5 is a rectangular solid, 4"x4"x7", quite featureless except
for the nameplate on the top and the connection pins, circular ~14pin, octal
size (possibly a valve - sorry, 'tube' - base, on the bottom. I will try to
get a couple of pictures off to the group within the next few days.
I have a 5.0C like the one in the reference - a very nice performing unit,
compares nicely with homebuilt GPSDO and off-air MSF standards. When the 'D'
model was offered by a friend I snapped it up - anything by Sulzer was good!
Apologies for the 'legalese' fluff that appears at the end - my employers
apparently have several lawyers with nothing important to do........
