I think this is a very nice contribution to the discussion. I think the 
phase lot and TDEV (not ADEV as written under the TDEV plot) display 
interesting deviations. Notice the 86400 s sawtooth shapes burried in 
noise, notice how they can have different directions. However, I am 
wondering if this is not a 12h property since sometimes the halfs seems 
to have opposite direction, but the auto-correlator plot speaks against 
this with its very clear spikes which suggests a more stable 24h pattern.

Nice to see the 1-1,5 ns time-stability in that range and slopes at both 
sides. Notice how it goes about 1 ns all the way up to 10000 s.

Good point.
