If you do decide to go with the 105 OCXO’s in your 5065A, you probably will need to test the samples you
have on hand. The selection process that sorted them into groups took place before many Time Nuts were
born. Over that sort of time period, stuff drifts and (possibly) gets better. Even when they were brand new,
there was no guarantee that a “plain spec” unit would actually be worse that a special spec unit.
