Crystal control is not sufficient.  20ppm at 10MHz is 200Hz which is
an order of magnitude or more too high (consider that the shift of the
FSK is only 200Hz).  You probably need around 1ppm accuracy.  The
operator-free solution is a reference clock slaved to the GPS.  With
DDS it shouldn't be that hard.
