Hi Chuck --
I have an FRS-C and the book for it.
The short term stability is 1x10e-10 for 1 second, 3.16x10e-11 for 10
seconds, and 1x10e-11 for 100 seconds. "1 day stability" is
1x10e-10/day, and long term drift is <5x10e-11/month. Phase noise is
-70dBc at 1Hz, improving to -130dBc at 1kHz.
There's also an FRS-N version ("C" is communications, "N" is navigation,
I think). It's about half an order of magnitude better in short term
stability, but the same in phase noise and long term drift.
Hope this helps.
