250 micro Hz relative to 1000 Hz is 1/4 ppm.

My memory is that junk PC crystals are ballpark of 1 ppm/degree.  (That's
probably per degree C rather than F, but that's only a factor of 2.)

So 1/4 ppm for 4 degrees is better than I would have guessed.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
