[time-nuts] Scopes and 1 PPS signals?

Hi Tom:

It's the period or rep rate I'm trying to determine.

The SR620 has the PRS10 Rb as it's external time base.  It's the period of the 
pulse I'm trying to determine.  i.e. I'm not at all sure it's a 1 PPS and 
expect it may be a serial data clock.

I've added a photo showing the front of the M100 Rb std.

Have Fun,

Brooke Clarke
