Does adding these filter elements lower Q or affect Phase Noise?

> Roughly (very roughly) speaking, the series combination of C1, C2, C3 and L1 should equal the load capacitance of the crystal. If there is a varicap, it’s likely in series as well. If the crystal is cut for series, then L1 resonates with the caps in series.
