[volt-nuts] Fluke 720A Kelvin Varley Divider Questions

Does anyone know where and how to obtain the LK389 mentioned below.  Linear 
Systems has a high minimum order but i would like to pursue rebuilding my HP-419 
since the chopper doesn't work (as usual).

A more general question would be:

Is it possible to design a chopper stabilised null detector using modern 
components with a performance equivalent to the 845A?

Whilst the noise of most chopper stabilised opamps is much larger than that of 
the 845A, perhaps something like the approach used in:
could be used.

Since the low noise preamp is AC coupled a lower noise input using a single 
ended JFET could be substituted for the one using the LSK389.
