Hello Rob and The Net:
I like my HP-5384A and use it with a external 10 MHz reference from my
At a 10 second gate I can get 11 digits displayed, at 1 sec gate I get
10 digits displayed.
The LCD is NOT back lit. Good to 225 MHz.With HPIB.
It will operate off of a external 9-15 VDC, in place of the AC power.
I also like the FLUKE PM6685/016. I use a external 10 MHz reference.
LCD is backlit, GPIB,
resolution to 12 digits displayed, with 2 MSBs truncated as overflow, with a
10 second gate.
Longer chassis than the HP.
The PM6685 comes in a Rb version for internal reference.
The HP was < 100$ and the FLUKE was 300$
Original goal was a HP-53132 or a SRS 620, but today they are tooo pricey
