Did the frequency shift at the same time?
If not, the first suspect would be the data collection system.

> I've been playing with some double oven HP10811's. I've been monitoring the internal oven feedback vs. temperature and noticed something interesting last night. There was a sudden step change in internal oven feedback voltage. This is the voltage coming from the amplifier monitoring the bridge that feeds the heater transistors.
> The step change was on the order of two or three times as large as normal swings caused by the furnace cycling in the house. The voltage was being monitored by a 8Ch ADC card. All of the other voltages on that card were stable.
