Re: OT 10Mhz references

I bought one of these last year:

The advantage of this module over the bare oscillators on the page you reference is that it is ready to go, complete with dual outputs and power input, and has been calibrated -- no NIST certificate or anything, but from the photos and description, he seems to know what he is doing. From what I can tell with my limited test capability, it is accurate and very stable. If you have better equipment, there is an adjustment on the board.

However, it is a sine wave output. As a reference, a nice sharp square wave might be easier to use.

Hi all:
I'm hoping to ref. a Rigol DSA815, a Rigol DG1022A sig gen and an HP 8753D VNA....to a good 10Mhz ref.
I see a heap of them here:

IDK what voltage is optimal or which unit to chose (*sine/square, single or double OXCO) and need some advice on this.
