Wow!
$250 each! Yes its a fraction of what they cost new but wasn't long agothese were had for $50. Its a shame but I agree with Walt. If youdon't have a GPS controlled 10 MHz source, here is your chance. They may not becheaper next time they show up. Other guidelines: A decent 10 MHz clock that you can discipline (if you want to roll your own) are at best just under$200 each new single piece. Then add the GPS receiver, a PIC or two and somesoftware. Unless you desire the engineering challenge, it would cost a lot moreto make your own unless your junk box is stocked! There are a few designspublish in QEX and such if you need some details of what it takes to make onebut if you have any interest at all, the $250 is not a bad price. I bought myHP3801A for $125. If you can find them now they are over $600, maybe more. 

Good find Walt!
Steve

(probably old news to some of you) China is in theprocess of switching out their CDMA sites to GSM. When the USA did thisthe HP Z3801 GPS reference became available. China uses the Trimble Thunderbolt in their CDMA systems that are beingsurplused out. http://www.trimble.com/tmg_thunderbolt.shtmlThere are a bunch on epay. Apparently this one guy has cornered themarket and they are selling pretty cheap. If you missed out on the Z3801several years back, you may want to check out epay. http://cgi.ebay.com/Thunderbolt-GPS-Disciplined-Clock-Trimble-Precise-clock_W0QQitemZ380040235322QQihZ025QQcategoryZ25399QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItemhttp://cgi.ebay.com/Thunderbolt-GPS-Disciplined-Clock-Trimble-Precise-clock_W0QQitemZ300236106074QQihZ020QQcategoryZ25399QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1638Q2em118Q2el1247There are several local guys here in Brevard that bought some of theseand they are happy.
