www.javad.com does have online pricing, not sure what discount "real"
customers buy at. Dual freq receivers are available on ebay.

Whats the price rations between TXCO, OCXO, Rb, Cs and H-maser? When is it
worth the gain do go dual freq GPS, depending on what frequency standard
you are comparing, transfering or steering...
