[time-nuts] CS reservoir depletion

Baring any holdover events,  the long term output of a properly configured tbolt should exceed any single cesium source or maser.  If you assume the 1 PPS signal is always accurate to 5 ns that is an  error of 1 part in 1.6E16 at tau=1 year.

Also,  there is code in Lady Heather that implements an external disciplining loop that outperforms the one in the tbolt firmware.

By the way that is why I repeatedly have asked the list if there is any
long term Tbolt data out there comparing the 1 PPS or the 10 MHz with a Maser.
I hope this is worth two cents.
