Description Tracking Generator Counter
                                    The Hewlett-Packard Model 844 3A Tracking Generator/Counter
was designed to be used in conjunction with the
Hewlett-Packard 8553/8552 Spectrum Analyzer. The Tracking
Generator provides a cw signal which tracks the frequency
tuning of the spectrum Analyzer.

As implied by the instrument name, the model 8443A also
includes a Counter section. The Counter section may be used
to count the output frequency of the tracking Generator or
the frequency of signals generated by external sources (up
to better than 120 MHz). A rear panel connector provides BCD
data output from the Counter section for use in external
equipment such as a recorder.

The time base for the model 8443A Counter section is a
stable oven-contained, crystal-controlled 1 MHz Oscillator.
Provisions are made to use an external 1 MHz source for the
time base if a Frequency Standard is available. An output
from the internal 1 MHz source is also available for use in
external equipment if desired.
