I am currently building precisely that (using an IsoTemp OCXO134-10).
However, the main problem I run into is my inability to find a source  for
the type of PLL chip that Poul-Henning is suggesting in his page (the
ICS525R-02I "OSCaR", which looks pretty ideal for this application).

Does anyone here have suggestions on where to get these chips, or does
anyone know an alternative PLL circuit with more easily obtainable  parts?
