It is non-trivial to set other than a few embedded frequencies with the 
software.  There has been a veiled promise of improved software that remains
unfulfilled.  It is a GPSDO, although the internal oscillator is a TCXO, not 
OCXO.  Mine runs on even a laptop USB port.



Mine's running of a standard PC USB port, and the power consumption measures 
between 220 and 240 mA.

With the supplied software (mine dated 2016-May-10, but that may have been 
the install date) setting the frequency is simply typing in the frequency in 
Hz, clicking "Find" and clicking "Update".  I've tried a whole variety of 
random frequencies (e.g. 123.456789 MHz) and the device locks within a few 

One limit is that the second output frequency needs to be related to the 
first, as far as I can tell.
