Crystal oscillator provides low noise

  
The oscillator delivers an output of high spectral purity without any substantial sacrifice of the usual stability of a crystal oscillator. The crystal in addition to determining the oscillator's frequency, is used also as a low-pass filter for the unwanted harmonics and as a bandpass filter for the sideband noise.

The noise bandwidth is limited to less than 100 Hz. All higher harmonics are substantially suppressed—60 dB down for the third harmonic of the 4-MHz fundamental oscillator frequency.
