Re: Alternative for K3 TCXO?

Was going to write the same thing but I knew somebody else would chime in.

Yeah, CCP Virus is now the fault of those Italians.  It's pasta that caused the virus and not bats served at wet bars.  He must work for a Red Chinese company.

Come on! Where do you think those Europeans and the other parts of the US got the virus from? That the virus started in China and has since spread to all the rest of the world is accepted science even in China. Period. Oops, there is that P word again, but I will not apologize for being "rude", nor for being super OT

And not to clutter the list up very much with off topic stuff or anything, but some response is warranted.  The big explosion of cases in NY appears to be from Europe and other parts of the USA.  Believe what you want.  The facts don't support what you're saying.  As always, China does what's best for China, but that's not new.

I just thought that for $20 (custom made in China, ~2 month delivery) it might be a worthwhile experiment to increase the reference oscillator stability (advertised as 0.1ppm).  My guess is, for this high of a frequency that the vendor’s circuit doesn’t doesn’t have a lot of gain.   Perhaps there are other reasons it didn’t work.  

The other thing I didn’t know about was if the K3’s Frequency Calibration would work.

   I didn’t test the amplitude of the stock oscillator (long story).

As for making an amplifier stage, I didn’t want to get into it...
