The impact of polarization mode noise on the temporal drift of a delivered analogue phase reference signal through an optical fiber network is studied. The relationship between the dispersion of the state of polarization, change of the state of polarization and the maximum temporal drift of the LO signal is established. The resulting temporal drift can be larger than the PMD value of the receiver under certain conditions. It is a significant contributor to the temporal drift in the ultra-low drift phase reference distribution system, especially when motion of the fiber has to be present in the system.
