[Mischanko, Edward T] 

To be more specific, I get wild adjustments in frequency when polling at or
 above the allan intercept setting with current FLL gain settings.  Again,
 I don't know why?  I don't understand how the frequency locked loop works
 verses the phase locked loop -- the differences?
