Thanks Don and Allen, it's been that long since I played with radio I
had forgotten- 5.12 is half of 10.240 used to downconvert from 10.7 if
to 455. I had a look through the circuits for my rigs, and my
Eddystone 770r boat anchor uses 5.12MHz to align the various if's, and
multiples of it to align various other bits, so the ocxo may yet come
in handy.

Of course, that means I now need to look for yet another round tuit
for that job- there never seems to be enough round tuits for the jobs
currently on hand, let alone new ones......
