I have a machine-translated PDF (~2.5MB), but nowhere to put it
up. If you have web space for it, please feel free to do so
(assuming that Karen does not object).
I have reservations about the potential of any Miller-style GPSDO,
because using an analog PLL essentially guarantees that the crossover
to GPS will be at a tau orders of magnitude lower than it should be
-- the Miller unit crosses over about 3 OOM too low (see attached
plot, from <http://www.leapsecond.com/pages/gpsdo/>).
The beloved Thunderbolt also crosses over about 2.5 OOM too early, if
you use the factory loop settings (id.). But it has an ADPLL with
adjustable parameters, so a time nut can tune the loop for best
performance with the particular OCXO in the unit. (See
