Hi

There’s a cluster of time and frequency outfits up in the Salem area. Some have been there for a *long* time indeed. The EG&G / Perkin Elmer Rubidium guys are one that comes to mind.  MTI is a bit further north, but still in the same side of the Boston urban sprawl.

The 3120A doesn't display noise at offsets below 1 Hz, though, while the 5330A went down to 0.01 Hz.  Also, some of the TimePod features are "added-value" software options in the 3120A, but it's not clear if this unit came with any of the license keys.
