[time-nuts] HP85814A - Programmable frequency reference

Dear All,

I'm looking for information (e.g. a manual) or people who have 
experience with the HP85814A Plug-in. It is a plug in for the HP8660x 
main-frame. It replaces both the modulation module and the RF-module. 
The display shows the M and N numbers of the PLL division in binary 
format. The name of the module: Programmable frequency reference. The 
module has no accessible RF-output on the front.

The only reference I found was in an old HP-Journal: 
www.hpl.hp.com/hpjournal/pdfs/IssuePDFs/1972-02.pdf  Here it is used as 
a part of an automatic spectrum-analyzer system (working up till 18 
GHz). The article only describes the general system setup, unfortunately 
not much detailed information on the module itself. Searching the 
Agilent website didn't return any  usefull information.

Any information is welcome! Thank you,

73 Jeroen PE1RGE
