Ah, I missed that!!!

I was thinking it fitted inside the SR620, but obviously not.

It would have been nice to have a better reference inside, as
sometimes I move equipment around, and don't always want to take more
than necessary, so having a better reference inside would have been a
nice thing, but I see it is not what I thought.

This unit I purchased has the option 01, the ovenized VCXO, but of
course that is not going to have the long-term stability of a Rb
source.

I see one of the SR625 add-ons on eBay,

but it does not look in good condition, so I'm not paying $700 for it.
