Drake Drift.

Frequency drift? How can you tell and what does it matter? Doppler causes
kind of a lot of drift all by itself. And, yes, any crystal controlled
oscillator living out in the weather will drift unless thoroughly insulated
and heated. You just hope the buggers will start when it gets REALLY cold
out.
