It shows a temperature somewhere in between the ambient and the OCXO case temperature. Some have mounted speed controlled fans to keep the TBolt case at a constant temperature.
Ah, so then it's probably fine. Thanks, the other posts which followed
seem to be in agreement with yours.
... Now then. Suppose I'll likely return my efforts to finding a time
constant that makes sense for my particular tbolt / usage needs.
