It doesn't say Time-nuts, since that would only render a long thread! ;O)

Seriously, that's nice. 

I notice that there is no less than three HP5372A up there, one is currently
at 355, one at 750 and one at 1700 USD. 355 is a nice going price, but it will
probably be more at the end of the bidding. 750 is OK. 1700 is a high initial
level, but this is what to expect from an instrument trader. Also, to the best
of my judgement will none of these carry the interesting options, such as I was
happy to conclude that mine does. ;O)

Those, expect only your garden-varity HP5372A reaching 500 MHz, no FFT to fool
around with and no 2G channel. I've even seen some stating 18 GHz but that is
with a stack of extra gear (generator + mixer).

There might be some LINUX GPIB software popping up eventually. ;O)
