Conditions for maximum oscillator frequency stability when variations occur in the circuit parameters are derived, and a method of designing VHF transistorized crystal oscillators to meet the conditions for maximum frequency stability is given. Two 200-megacycle oscillators were built and tested. The experimental results show that when the derived design conditions are met, the oscillator frequency is least sensitive to small changes in the circuit parameters.
