Hmm.. IIRC AT cut oscillators have the "problem" of frequency jumps
on slight temperature changes. Using an AT cut oscillator thus kind
of defeats the effort of doing a BVA.

What such an oscillator would be worth :-)
You might be aware that there is one 8602 on sale on ebay for 4500USD.
I asked Oscilloquartz about that and from what i gathered, it's definitly
not worth that money. For slightly more you can get a new 8607 already.
The 8602 worth is probably around 150 to 200USD.
