After sleeping on it I think what I'm getting at is that the company now 
called HP has nothing to do with the company that built the Clocks and 
Time & Frequency equipment that Tom has posted.  I have had emails from 
people who were trying to contact the new HP with questions about test 
equipment because they did not know that the test equipment was made by 
a company now called Agilent.  The tech support people at the new HP 
don't know about Agilent.  Agilent continues to have a Time and 
Frequency operation in Santa Clara, California. 

Have Fun,
