50 cents, you're overpaying.

35 cents, with proper software can see as little as 1 second drift per day.

Give an example. You could calibrate out the +- 30ppm frequency deviation in software but how would you propose dealing with the +- 50ppm stability with temperature?

In ham radio equipment they often use a small adjustable variable trimmer cap in place of one of the fixed padding caps to fine tune the resonance frequency of the crystal +/- a few KHz, but that wouldn't have any improvement for the tempo stability variation of the crystal, that you live with or control the environmental temperature of the crystal.

Yeah, I'm familiar with those kinds of hardware solutions but I was wondering how CrossRoads proposed doing it in software.
