Title: What Frequency Counter Do You Like
Post by: briansalomon on 12-19-2018 -- 22:59:29
I need to replace my workhorse lab frequency counter (up to 500 Mhz) and the model I have favored for years (HP 5345A) just isn't reliable anymore and I don't have time to keep repairing it.

I'm wondering what you guys have used and liked.

I've liked the 5345A because it is so stable. I've kept mine tuned to my Cesium beam and it stays within 1X10-9 or better every time I tun it on.

What have you used and liked?

Agreed, but including the higher frequency Channel 3 and a GPS.
