Of course the point I made is not as useful as it might be.There are a ton of Morions out there and very few Trimble OCXO’s outside of TBolts. I doubt anybody is going to scrap out a working TBolt for it’s OCXO :).

Once you get them surplus, there is no reason to believe the Trimble parts survive the scrap out process any better than the Morions. Also since the TBolt they came out of is worth *far* more than the OCXO, it’s not at all clear why you would pull one from a working unit. If they unit was broke - was it the OCXO ?? Hmmmm…..
