I just installed the Jackson Labs LC-XO-Plus. It has lock (took about 30 minutes as expected). I plugged it into the Flex 6500 when it was turned off. I understand that the Flex checks for an external signal during boot.

Is there any indication of interaction between the Flex and the GPSDO? Nothing is obvious.

Anything else need to be done other than plugging it in after lock and before boot?

No, there is not other than the radio does not click every 1-2 seconds after it has booted to indicate it has found a suitable clock source.

And running the calibration routine should be an indicator too.  Returning a stable offset value close to 0 will indicate that the source is accurate to 10 MHz and stable.
