I got a HP 5370A off of Ebay and although it looks terrible I thought it
would probably work OK.
But it doesn't :-( I downloaded the manual and have yet to print it out.
When doing a self check by feeding the 10 MHz from the back into the
counter it counts cycles OK
but the last 3 or 4 digits are erratic. I am starting to do as much
alignment as I can but am
wondering if this is a known problem and if a cure is known.
Anyway I think I paid too much for this box of problems but will
continue to try to repair.
Any suggestions (on repair only) is appreciated
