Many thanks for your help with this. It looks like some types of these
use 15V and others 24V. I received a PM from Bob Raker with the
Both are 7 dBm output & 1 ppb/day aging
225-7639: +24V supply - EFC: .3 ppm min for 0-6V, +/- 1 ppb for 15 to 35C
217-8364: +15V supply - NO EFC, +/- 30 ppb for -20 to 70C.
In case anyone else was interested in this information.
