Based on the phase noise on the 15 MHz output, I would *guess* that the 5 MHz OCXO has a floor in the vicinity of -160 dbc / Hz. That would be correct per the MTI spec sheet. It also would make sense based on your phase noise plots. Close in ( around 200 Hz) your multiplier and amp are doing a better job than the stock 15 MHz tripler and buffer. They have a lot of buffer amps in their 15 MHz chain, so who knows where the issue is in the stock design.
