I hooked the two rubidiums together just to see what would happen. It pretty much did what I expected... chaos... the time-nut equivalent of a naughty schoolboy putting a microphone up to the speaker of the public address system. I't's a tough job, but somebody gotta do it ;-)

Symmetricom calls the disciplining state where it can't lock to the 1PPS signal the "holdover" state. It's sort of like a GPSDO holdover state. Their discipline firmware does let you set the time constant and damping values. I tried a little playing around with them, but never found any settings that worked consistently well with the LEA-5T.
