Additional suggestions, for short term realization, and cost effective:

PTS synthesizer that will cover the desired freq, Programmed Test 
Sources are common on Ebay.
Can use an external 10 MHz reference. Get one with front panel knobs 
(setability).

Possibly a FLUKE model 6061B synthesizer, tunable in 1 Hz steps. Can use 
a 5 MHz reference
Useable to 160 MHz.

Other synthesizers from commercial test equipment manufacturers.
