I purchased Gerry's High Stability Oscillator and it works very good. Also purchased the 030 prescaler option for Poland and it also seems to work fine up to as high as my sig gen can operate.

Hi

I was wondering if anyone here has a 53132A that could provide a good Hi-Res Photo of the main board.?
Or if anyone happened to have a totally trashed board I could get from them that would also work.
I've got one photo but not very good.   Just been trying to compare and see what would be required to hack a 53131A board to a 53132A
Now if anyones knows if it's possible or not and could save me time investigating that would be helpful as well

I know 2xAD7580JP, 1xXC3042A-7PC84C are the main differences but I'm sure there are others.

I had my 53132A open to replace the timebase (again), and took some pictures. Sorry, the quality isn't great.

@max-bit

what happened with your 12 and 26 ghz boards.
I've checked your site and last update was in 2013,  did you ever produce the boards?  I'd love to try the 12ghz board out though I can't get that high. I've got a R&S SMIQ for 6ghz but currently can test to 3 ghz (actually about 3.1 works)
