[time-nuts] Some examples of HF frequency smearing`

That's a nice set of plots. Very cool tool. Too bad there's
no Windows version. Or is there a x86 Windows-based
emulator for Linux executables that would help?

Did you see the dozen mystery signal examples in:


I believe the baudline tool would be fantastic for analyzing
short-term stability of oscillators.

John, your plots bring up an interesting issue. Calling it
a frequency shift over a half hour may be mathematically
correct but we know this is actually a received carrier
phase shift over the sampling time. A good analogy of
how a phase microstepper works.
