My goal is to build a GPSDO and to learn as much as possible
in the process. And while i'm at it, i'd like to get a
precission/accuracy that comes close to what can commercially 
bought, if possible even better ;-)

And as most of the parameters of the GPSDO are dictated by the
quality of the OCXO, i'd like to get some that are of good quality.
Or at least worth the money i pay for them.
