I'm looking to evaluate the LMX2492. Does TI have a recommended VCO to pair with the EVM board?

The EVM has 2 VCO footprints on it that can be used. The one we have now is for the RFVC-1843, which is getting obseleted. Nevertheless, this is a pretty standard footprint.
Macom makes the MAOC-011027, which is the same pinout and you can force it to work on the board, but one Vcc is moved, so you need one wire to fix this. I have used the Macom VCO on this board before.
Triquint also has vcos. At 14 GHz, they have the TGV2566-SM, which looks like similar gain and footprint to what we have.
