I have been looking for a Racal 9462 ocxo , for my Racal-Dana 1991 
counter. I will prob. use my Tbolt anyway , and save the money.

But i'm confused ... Is it a 5 Mhz or a 10 Mhz unit.

I have found pictures of one claiming it's 5Mhz

But i have also received a picture from jaap , with a racal 9492 , where 
it clearly says its a 10Mhz unit.

Can anyone clarify ?

I think there was an "option" that enabled the use of "other ocxo values"
is that why a 5Mhz can be used , in some 1991's ?

If i ever decide to get a OCXO , i would like to get the "right one".
