[time-nuts] FTS 4050 Cesium Time Reference Manual

Does anyone by chance have a copy of the FTS 4050 Cesium Time Reference Operation or Service manual in PDF?  Or is an equivalent Cesium unit out there who's manual can be used as a surrogate for setup and operation?

I have a request in with support from Symmetricom (Microsemi), however there is no joy on that route.  I'm also open to scanning someone's hard copy manual into PDF and returning promptly with beer money, if that helps.

I have two similar Symmetricom GPSDO boards but with a slightly different parts layout that were manufactured in about 2012. The OCXO in the first one is 4.1950 Mhz and there is a 10 Mhz VCO next to it.

The second one has a Symmetricom SA22-c
Rb oscillator. The large blank spot in question is for the version of these that would have the Rubidium oscillator and the copper foil is part of the heat sink for that version.

I haven’t checked the output frequency of the SA22-c but it is probably the same as the OCXO version.
