Wow, that's awesome Tom. I didn't even
know about alot of those older products.
BTW, regarding the HP/Agilent naming
controversy: the cesium product line
was originally part of Varian. So you
might claim the 5060A was a "Varian" clock.
If you visit the 5071A production line,
you can see that they are still using the
original Varian CBT burn-in fixtures (circa 1960!)
marked "Varian Associates". It's never
been a secret, but they don't publicize it.
According to folklore, Bill Hewlett "demanded"
that Varian sell the product line to HP
or else HP would put them out of business.
