Hi all,

Lady Heather just reported that my Thunderbolt's "osc age alarm" just activated.

The manual tells me this means that the oscillator control voltage is
at a rail and that the oscillator should be replaced. It says this
shouldn't be needed during the first 12 years of service, but mine is
~17 years old, so its time may have come.

Where can I find a suitable replacement oscillator? Is there a
recommended part number? If the original part is no longer available,
what is a good substitute?
