Frequency dividers can be pretty low noise, if you choose the right class
of logic.  I remember that
at one time in the distant past, LSTTL was considered king.  Unfortunately
I've been out of touch
with frequency dividers long enough to be ignorant of what works well today.

i'd suggest trying something with either HC-series or AC-series CMOS,
chances are fair that you'd
be happy.  Write me off list and I'll tell you which well-known distributor
still has an excellent
selection of HC and AC parts in stock.
