I'll check with my source. He pointed out this fact to me last year. Naturally,
I could have got him wrong, or he could have his facts wrong.

You interprent what I said as it is the same tube, I did not say that. What my
source said was that they where manufactured by Symmetricom.

Or, to put it in another form, do you know where the HP/Agilent tubes are
actually made (i.e. not the total clock assembly)?
