[time-nuts] Practical considerations making a lab standard with an LTE lite

There are two plots with activity changing at 300 seconds. The second plot (purple) is the removal of the paper at 300 seconds. The fourth plot (red) is the addition of the paper at 300 seconds. 

The last plot (green and blue) is ADEV with and without the paper. Blue is ADEV with paper. Green is ADEV without paper.

The second to last plot demonstrates the unit meeting 1x10^-9 (peak to peak) frequency stability with the paper over a 1,000 second test. It shows it doing about 5X worse on frequency stability over the same period without the paper. Yes, that’s all with 1 second averaging. Changing the averaging would impact each of the results. It should change their ratio. 

Again back to the basic question: frequency over what period? Go to a 24 hour average and the results should be terrific. In some systems, that’s a useful number (I guess….). I rarely see people set their counters to an 86,000 second gate time :)
