I have a similar issue, I can never tell if my messages post or not, some I
get back instantly others never show up in my inbox. I think the mail
server was just updated..
To answer your questions:
1) attached is the PN plot of the 1.0GHz version.
2) Here is a datasheet for the part:
The tricky part in your proposed setup will be getting a 100MHz crystal
with low enough phase noise so that the 20log(N/M) added phase noise won't be
a problem - +20dB added after all.
On our part some of the tricky design issues were size and power as well as
the high output power of +22dBm, and a requirement to maintain the output
power to within 0.5dB over the entire -40C to +85C temperature range.

It sounds like all my messages need moderator approbation. Is it the
rule on the list or a technical problem at my side ?
