[time-nuts] Low cost oscillator packages

Assume the temperature is stable and the power supply is clean and we aren't 
testing one of the PLL units and ...

What's the ADEV and/or phase noise of a typical low cost oscillator package?  
Are there slightly more expensive parts that are a lot better?  Is there 
something in the data sheets to look for?

What sort of toys do I need to measure ADEV and/or phase noise?  I'm 
interested in hobby prices rather than expensive high-end gear.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
