You might also take a look at fldigi.  It uses libsamplerate for
conversion so you can do +/- ppm correction on the sound input, and also
offers a tracking frequency measurement mode.  A couple of years ago, I
calibrated my radio clock against WWV at 10 MHz, then applied the
resampling correction to get the sound card right, and then placed highly
in the ARRL 7 Mhz FMT using this method.
