Disclaimer:  I've not used any of these yet.  New style assembly houses
are MUCH cheaper than traditional proto shops.  The ones I'm planning on
trying are:

Macrofab (Houston)  https://macrofab.com/

pcb:ng http://pcb.ng/index.html (currently in beta with **deep**
discounts.   $1/sq in + BoM cost

Small Batch Assembly  http://www.smallbatchassembly.com/

All of these guys have their advocates. All will do under 10 pcs.    I
plan on running a similar job through each of them and seeing what I find.

My GPSDOs have about 120 parts per board, plus some custom work on the SMA connectors.  Is there a service out there that will populate boards with SMT components for small orders at a reasonable price?  Small is 10 boards.
