[time-nuts] Common sky pps errors for any GPSDOs?

Hi Matt,
on Fury we typically see the 1PPS aligned to within +/-25ns or so without  
calibration when two units use the same antenna feed.
There is a good paper on the M12+ receiver's accuracy from Synergy/NIST,  
they tested five receivers against UTC (at UTC!!). They came up with a baseline  
error of 2ns over 3 weeks when the units are calibrated.
You can find the paper on our website: 
We did not do tests over longer baselines yet.

The  other concern, of course, is that even if both units were very
close, they  will be exposed to slightly different environmental
conditions (different  A/C settings, different cycling times, etc.).

Are there any good papers  discussing this subject?  Any data out there?

Said -- have you  measured this sort of thing on the  Fury?
