Hi John, Thanks for the prompt reply. I am Measuring the 10 MHz with the 
counter set at .1usec. The display says us. I just turned the setup on again 
and now I get gust the count every time the time base opens. It reads 
between .0 and .4. I trust this helps you John. Give me your phone # and a 
good time to call and I will call you.
