Allow me to clarify.
I started out with 7 MV 89 one of it a total loss. The remaining 6 after 3
month + burn in show better than 1 E-11 aging per day, 2 closer to 5 E-12.
Only two have been tested for ADEV and are close to 1 E-12, 2X not 10 X.

The problem is that there are no “magic coefficients”. What you run
depends very much on the exact OCXO you have, the environment you run it in, and
the result you are after.
For instance, Bert is after frequency stability. Tom is after the right
time. Each of them will have very different coefficients for the same
My Morion OCXO has a floor of 2x10^-12, Bert has some that are 10X better
than that (maybe). His coefficients and mine will be very different.
I had an antenna outdoors. It got many sat’s all the time. Now I have one
indoors. It’s not getting lots of sats all the time. My old coefficients
are not going to be my new coefficients.
No magic bullet, you have to do the work.
