Staying on the topic of the thread, I also found the list clogging
up with fixes for a cheap rubidium device (wouldn't call it a

Outlook told me that there were 10,350 messages in the time-nuts
folder since it was archived at the end of 2010. I used Find for
5680 and got 900 messages, starting with Feb 2011 warnings about
their frequency errors. Then I used Select All and Delete to remove
9% of the folder.

How about a new list for eBay finds that are a waste of money, like
the Lucent XO and Rb 15 MHz boxes? Maybe "time-rats" or "time-junk"

If anyone wants all the FE5580A mail to go to one place make a filter
in your email reader.  Tell it to place anything sent from the TN list
with "FE5680" in the header or text to go into a special folder or
otherwise be tagged as fe5680 related.

I think this happens all the time -- people talk about whatever is
new.  Eventually $40 fe5680s will not be new.
