Here's a question... how frequency-stable are the top-of-the-line rigs from
other manufacturers?  I ask this because I wonder if one would see any
practical difference between a rig that was slaved to a GPS time standard
and accurate to less than 1 Hz, and, say, an Omni VI that was accurate to
within 30 Hz (and didn't drift during transmit).

Would many people think it a good deal to spend about $100 to $160 (higher
if a TXCO was needed) to get under 5 Hz accuracy with their Omni VI... or a
little more to get the ability to add a 10 Mhz reference?
