Don't waste your money on a SO-3  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I originally purchased this TCXO off of eBay for about $15.99. The price has slowly crept up a bit as its gained popularity.

I have a Kenwood TS590SG, and I still for the life of me cannot figure out why Kenwood would choose not to put a TCXO in this fine rig. But for $15.99 it was a no brainer! The TCXO was already presoldered to a PCB which made it that much easier. Installation took less than 5 minutes.

I use a lot of digital modes, and would experience slight drift on start up & during temperature cycles of the rig, but with this TCXO, that has been completely eliminated.

Great product!

Please review my installation & further details:
