HI all ,
I had a 5370 A shipped to me that suffered enough of a drop/roll to 
break a handle and bend the chassis such that the bottom panel had to be 
modified to get it back on.  When I connected the timebase output to the 
start input the frequency display is 10.0000000xx with the last two 
numbers moving about quite a lot.  Could this indicate damage to the 
oscillator due to the drop?  I haven't tuned up the inputs yet so this 
may be an artefact of that.
