What I've seen is that a dual oven 10811 will run even **finer** and have up 
to 100 times less sensitivity to normal room temperature changes with a 
simple outer oven controller and a few mods.

In 2010 I compared the performance of a TBolt using an external dual oven 
10811 Osc with and without it's outer oven being controlled.
There was more than a 60 to 1 improvement in the 10811's freq sensitivity to 
small room temperature changes when the outer oven was active.
Open loop 10811 TC was <1e-12 /C with the dual oven on compared to 6e-11/C 
with it off.
The green trace shows how much less EFC correction is needed to be to keep 
the 10811's frequency constant when the dual oven is active.
