Mainly did FMT to see what could be done with K3 with human operator reading waterfall screen....
it works & I'm happy about that (that is pretty good key in this hobby, if you ain't happy ah? change!
maybe some bragging rights in there but the FMT is a NON-ARRL event, no awards to post up on the wall
That is really great but is there a genuine need to be that accurate, or is it mainly for bragging rights?

I don't see you listed in any recent
FMT results, so I wonder about your technique(s). Mine, which
don't include a K3, made it into the top tier in the last FMT. I
was 0.03 Hz high on 80 and 0.01 Hz low on 40.

Old or new style synthesizer
I have frequency measurements
better than 1hz in FMTs
No txco used.....
A few years ago I bought 2 cheap
TCXO's for an FT857, from 2 allegedly different ebay
suppliers in China Both looked identical on
arrival. One worked fine, one was junk - drifted
continually. So maybe you should have bought 2 ?
Nowadays, I wouldn't even consider
something I knew was made in China when an OEM
product is available. Worth paying the extra $
