[time-nuts] Thunderbolt?

Hey I got my Starlocs for $30 a pop, so even the cheap Thunderbolts look pricey. ;-)

One advantage I can see to the package deal is perhaps they test the whole package prior to shipping. 

Note these timing units are pulled from US cell shacks often. Why we don't see them sold domestically is a mystery to me. (I unfortunately lost my contact at MetroPCS.) 

I don't really get it, but these wireless companies move sites around often, building the new site first, putting it on line, then just abandoning the old site. Metro would get an old site and junk the gear, which in turn ended up at the flea market.

The era of cheap Thunderbolts appears to be history.
