Hi, Brent.

It's possible that your 2N4401's amplitude limiting mechanism may be temperature sensitive. Although it may be a bit of a reach, this could cause some of the accelerated frequency drift versus temperature you describe.

In Electronic Design's column "Ideas For Design", I once published at item: "AGC Gives Top Tuning Range", ED Sept. 12, 1991, page 141, in which I used an AGC loop to amplitude limit an oscillator in this frequency range. If you can find that issue, I suggest you consider it.

If you can't find it, then let me know and I'll e-mail a scan of it to you.

Good luck.
