In a word,Wavemeters. Classic US onwas the BC221 with built in 100kHz crystal calibrator
British was the "Class D"http://www.royalsignals.org.uk/photos/classDno1.htm

For UHF and Microwave it was Lecher lines or cavity wavemeters.

I was inspired recently coming across a Lampkin 105 frequency meter, as to
how  frequency measurement was done before counters.

Certainly zero-beating a dial calibrated oscillator, would be one approach.

Is there a standout methodology or instrument predating counters?
