I checked the documentations I have, the option 4C isn't mentionned, but
all the (Internal Reference) options 04x (04A=OCXO, 04B=High Stability
OCXO, 04T=TCXO, 04E=High Stability OCXO (?)) are 10 MHz. There is a
Reference Frequency Multiplier (Option 10) which allows to use 1, 2, 5
or 10 MHz as an external reference.
The parts numbers are:
option 04A: 11-1710 (oscillator), assy=9444
option 04B: 11-1711 (oscillator), assy=9423
option 04E: 404386
option 04T: 11-1610 (plate assy) + 19-1208 (oscillator PCB)
option 10: 19-1164
Hope that helps,
