Well the 5065a has settled in very nicely from its failure that I documented
Its at specification and actually 2nd harmonics actually higher then the
original numbers by 10 units.
But as I went through the process to realign it to GPS several questions
The time scale has always been set to 8714. A offset of -250 x 10 ^-10.
Wouldn't gps be 0.000 offset or 9159?
By the way if 9159 is selected the system looses lock. It seems touchy many
settings unlock and I may have a A1 synth problem.
If the system is locked. If the synth is incremented or decremented by 1
count shouldn't there be essentially a small change in the offset? Becoming
larger as more digits are selected? Again I think this is pointing to a
issue in the divider change. Heck could be a bad counter or dirty selector
Thanks for your comments
