Hi, all.

The FTS-8400 arrived today, with a manual. I might scan it for posterity,
but it seems to be a bit less useful than I hoped for - I figured I might
be able to use it as a disciplined oscillator to an external PPS, but it
does not look like it is capable of that.

Anyway. just though someone might be interested, the high stability
oscillator option is indeed a 5Mhz FTS-1000A.
