Stanford Research FS700 Loran-C Frequency Standard

Typical Long-Term Stability

Stability to Tau 400k (1.6 million seconds of data)

Lucky, but atypical data point for tau 400k

Older plots at tau 100k:

The FS700 reaches about 5x10-13 at a day.

Comparison with GPS

Given 200k seconds each of Loran-C (FS 700) and GPS (HP 58503B) normalized phase data, here are similar scale (+/- 250 ns) plots for both:


Peak to peak noise is

RMS noise is

ADEV at tau 12 hours is
