This is my first attempt at having a time reference for my home lab. I have recently ordered a pulled / untested Tbolt (board in box wo/ power supply) from ebay. It has a 5 day right to return if non functional. While waiting to receive the unit, I have been getting things ready here (antenna, power supplies w/ connector, and TboltMon).
My question..... Is there a check out procedure or list of things that I can test quickly to determine if I have received a functional unit with a decent oscillator? I just want to make sure I have not been sent a dud. Longer term I can read more, learn, monitor and tweak its performance. I am only trying to make sure I have a good platform to start with.
Thanks for you advice / comments.
