You mean you can't take it with you?!  It will (hopefully) be a long time before I get to that point, because it sounds boring already.

IMHO, the RACAL 1992 is an excellent frequency and phase tool, with 
its 9 digit display. The Phase AB feature allows fine comparison of 
two 10 MHz inputs. Don't know the 91. 

The cure for time-nuttery is to get old, and realize that your 
collection of equipment will prevent you from being able to move 
to assisted living.

Hello Nuts 

I'm a Danish radio ham , and have recently picked up electronics again. 
I'm programming AVR & ARM controllers , and doing some basic electronics 
stuff. I am rusty in analog electronics , and even have to lookup how to 
calculate a base resistor on a bjt.

And now back to the Racal-Dana 1991 or 1992 Counter question. 
I might need a TIC , and the HP5070 + shipping is to much. 
So i was wondering about one of the above mentioned Racal's. 

I have a nice offer on a 1991 , but can get a 1992 also ? 
Witch one would you recommend for general "Nut usage".

Ps: I suppose the above sounds familiar. 
    Has anyone found a cure the yet
