Chris,
I didn't see that anyone had answered your question about the XO unit
running by itself.  Yes, the XO unit is or was a hot standby for the
rubidium unit.  So it had to be able to function if there was a failure of
the primary unit.
Have you found the hook-up cable drawings on KO4BB's web site?
