[time-nuts] FE 5680A "new version" - Filtering the 10 MHz

I may be mistaken but that does not look like harmonic distortion to me.....
the frequency "imposed" on the 10MHz sine-wave is around 140MHz, this sounds
like the VCO frequency in the Rb loop. The corner frequency of the filter
could be a long way away from 10MHz in that case ....with maybe minimal
phase shift tempco at 10MHz ?? Butterworth?
