By the way, I still think about building something more useful to be
put to the same place in that nice metal box. For example PIC with
serial interface to the outside world and fine tuning DAC to adjust Rb
source, plus cleanup PLL loop with TCXO, plus some divider to 2
or 4 isolated outputs... Maybe same PIC for monitoring everything inside,
from temperatures and voltages to Rb unit health status (lamp voltage,
lock status, etc)...

If enough people have such units, it may become group project...

Best regards,
