      It might be possible to use that DDS with careful selection of output
      frequencies (DDS spurs are highly dependent on that, and some choices
      are MUCH worse than others), but that would require the use of a
      spectrum analyzer to study its output. Output filtering would also help,
      as the really bad spurs in the example are well away from the center
      frequency. That said, it would be a lot easier to use an Si570-based
      frequency source instead.
