Wow.  Seriously I was just going to post about my $35 GPSDO.  I've used
some discipline to not say "for just a little more I can get..." and gone
the lowest cost route at each decision point.  Just to see what happens.

Price does not include GPS receiver, plug-in power cube and case and I'm
not shooting for really great spec's.  My goal was lowest price possible.
 The unit is based on the one posted here by Lars Walenius.  I replaced his
$30 Arudino with a $4 part and added an LCD display.

It's not finished yet.  I plan on changing out the LCD display to a $4
Nokia cell phone part that does 84x84 pixel graphics.  I'd like to have the
GPSDO do its own primitive graphs and setup menus without need to be
connected to a computer.

No intent to compete with a commercial product.  I'm not going to sell
them.  But in time I'll document it.
