Speaking of eBay, does anyone have had experience with the Chinese 53132
counter lookalikes? They are SCPI compliant with the HP gold standard, 12
digits/s, 375MHz on A/B channels and 6GHz with standard C channel.
Berkeley Nucleonics sells under BNC1105 model, picotest as U6200A, Acquitek
as U6200A, and I'm sure Burger King could strike a deal with the original
manufacturer and sell it a the Whopper Counter (do you want fries with
Specifications are a nudge better, but grains of salt are called for - HP
usually has very good manufacturing margins on their specs, and build things
to last longer than most refrigerators.
These counters are sold by the 're-branders' for around $2500, and there's
an eBay listing from Singapore (original maker or cheaper branding
operation) at $1230.
Has anyone used one, do they live up to the printed specs?
