Hello to all,
I think everyone is missing the boat here, so to speak. Eric does not
necessarily need a high degree of accuracy.
What he really needs is stability. So if he was off frequency a bit, that could
be handled in the tunable IF unit, which is, most likely, some wide range modern
VHF/UHF tunable radio.
A very high quality ocxo would probably satisfy the need. Or as someone
suggested, a combination of ocxo and a Rb. The Rb would provide the longer term
needed for the really high multiplication into upper GHz region and the ocxo
locked to Rb would [ possibly ] provide the "quiet" drive source.
