This paper describes the theory and design of a compact low noise dielectric resonator oscillator operating at 3.8GHz. The oscillator demonstrates a phase noise performance of -150dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset with a tuning range of 200 kHz and a vibration sensitivity of 10-8 and 10-9 g-1. The power supply requirements are 6V without a regulator or 8V regulated at160mA. The box dimensions are 11 x 11 x 5 cm.
