That's a very happy coincidence and one I'd hoped to hear.
The pictures in the auction seem to show a lack of tarnish on the Ref Out
and Ref In BNCs which suggests they have had plugs on them, looping the
internal reference, other little bits of information also pointed to that,
the remnants of a sticker on the front of one unit seems to say
'RUBID01...', past auctions of T801 units have been labelled with things
like 'RUBID048', the hex switches seem to be set correctly for use with an
internal reference as well so I was quietly confident they had the Rb
Now I just have to cross my fingers that mine arrive with the Rb in good
conditon. The seller also states 'working order' so there's possible scope
for a refund if it doesn't.
