The only thing that comes to mind is to divide the 10 MHz by 2500000
(5x5x100000) and then use a phase locked loop to multiply by 8192. Of
course the PLL would best control a varactor with a clock crystal vice
controlling an RC oscillator. Other divisor multiplier pairs are:
1250000/4096, 625000/2048, 312500/1024, 156250/512, and 78125/256.
