[time-nuts] Inexpensive Alternative to a 5120A

I saw that someone was using one of these: http://www.microsemi.com/products/timing-synchronization-systems/test-measurement/test-sets/5120a

...and the more I looked at it, the more I wanted one.  However, I couldn't get a price for one, but only quotes.  This can only mean that they are really expensive and out of reach of mere mortal novice time-nut like myself.

Is there an alternative that someone could point me to that would cost only a couple hundred rather than (what I expect) is a couple thousand?  How would I go about gathering the data needed for these nifty ADEV graphs I see floating about in here?

Could there be a kit or something that I can plug into a PC?  I really don't even know where to start looking?

Thanks - in advance - for any suggestions!
