Thanks for the answer.  I am an HF DXer.  I don't even have an antenna for 6 meters.  I use my 10 Element tribander on 12/17/30 with a Palstar AT-5K.  No antenna for 160 because of a relatively small suburban lot.

That is really great but is there a genuine need to be that accurate, or is it mainly for bragging rights?

I don't see you listed in any recent FMT results, so I wonder about your technique(s).  Mine, which don't include a K3, made it into the top tier in the last FMT.  I was 0.03 Hz high on 80 and 0.01 Hz low on 40.

A few years ago I bought 2  cheap TCXO's for an FT857, from 2 allegedly different ebay suppliers  in China  Both looked identical on arrival. One worked fine, one was junk - drifted continually. So maybe you should have bought 2 ?

 

Nowadays, I wouldn't even consider something I knew was made in China when an OEM product is available. Worth paying the extra $  IMO. 

 

stay safe
