You can save a little if you build a "GPS disciplined Rb".  It is just like
building a GPSDO but you use the Rb in place of the OCXO.  Saves money and
I think gives better results because you do not have to transfer frequency
from the crystal to the Rb.  Unless you need the OCXO for some other reason.

I was luck to have bought the FE5680 back when they were $35 each.  They
work well enough for my 10 digit frequency counter.
