With a $15 budget. I think you are limited to the old Motorola Oncore
type. The UT+ sells for about $15 on eBay. There are two versions of the
UT. Get the timing one. These aren't to bad. The PPS one sigma error is
about 50ns and the UT runs on 5 volts. The newer MT+ version is better
but at least $30.
Does it make sense to place thermal insolation on a TCXO? It does on an
OCXO because there is a thermostat inside the device and the thermal
insulation will help the OCXO maintain a constant temperature. But a TCXO
will just run hotter. I think all you need is a box to keep drafts and
direct sunlight off the TCXO.
