[time-nuts] Advantages & Disadvantages of the TPLL Method

I went quickly thru Tom's reference list and was unable to fine anything
that had much if anything to do directly with the NIST, the NBS, or the
slightly modified ws TPLL method.
All of those papers seem to be about how to measure Phase noise, NOT
frequency stability, and from what I was able to find, the measurements they
were making were not taken from the EFC line put from the mixer/PhaseDector
output. Big Difference, makes that more like a LPLL type method.
As far as the list of disadvantages that I could find, the one under what
Tom said was a good TPLL example, said:
" The phase lock loop must be very precisely controlled, since it effects
measurement results" is clearly not what NBS or I'm doing.
Neither does the schematic in another paper have anything to do with the
simple TPLL method.
Lots of good and useful stuff there, Just nothing (I could find) on the TPLL
method that "we" have been discussing here.
If anyone could point out something that I missed, it would make my search
for any relevant things easier.
