I have sort of given up on OCXO's for applications where I care about
their shortcomings, a statement I realise is of same order as "cook
until done".

The $1600 a new PRS10 costs me, is a saving in the long run, because
I can disregard a yearly calibration for the next ten years.

The only drawback to Rubidium is the amount of power it sucks.
