Fellow time-nuts: 
I've got a circa 1964 DY-5842 VLF receiver. This is (was) operated in
conjunction with an external time interval counter to make a frequency
comparison. So you would select WWVL for example, and use that as your
primary standard for comparison to your local standard. It's got 5 crystals
in it: 16, 18, 19.8, 20, and 60 kHz (listed as GBR, NBA, NPM, WWVL, WWVB).
It works and I have the manual. The thing is, the interest in something
like this is bound to be a bit narrow, so I thought I'd mention it here.

So if there are any collectors, equipment museums, etc. that might be
interested in this, please let me know. I'm a bit sentimental about this
thing, it's sort of a bit of history, and from what I can tell, somewhat
rare (doesnt make it worth anything though :). Since it's a bit of a
curiosity, I'd like to pass it to someone that might be interested in it
rather than just tossing it. I can always provide more details to anyone
that wants them.

Best regards,
