Copied the eBay description here for posterity, seems like useful information:

hp 5071A cesium beam Primary Frequency Standard 5071A is the most famous Cesium standard, in excellent working condition (using standard CBT tube), E-mult voltage only 1510V, still in very young period, I beleive the unit stay in warehouse more than 20 years since A2 board broken (I fixed it now). please be aware the E-mult voltage is most important parameter to verify the Cesium Beam Tube's life. the maximum value is 2553V, if you found that is 2553V, that mean it is died or very soon be died. so, if you want to buy a used and good 5071A (LED green), please check the E-mult voltage, the value from 1100V to 2553V (actually is -1100 to -2553V), that is its life evaluation way;

and CBT value may reach 90% of the 5071A, if CBT is near to end of life, the price of 5071A should be quite cheap, you can check all the listing in Ebay for the 5071A as parts, can you find a health CBT? BTW, I can fix any problem of the 5071A easily except CBT tube.

contine working more than 1 week, no any alarm, the video is using the 5071A as reference, to test phase noise and frequency stability of symmetricom X72;

the internal battery is two lead battery (12V, 2.5AH), already took out since it was no voltage;
