Hi George:

It's just a guess (my counter's tied up now so can't do experiment), but 
in order to get down to 1 micro hertz (1 pico second) there's some 
analog stuff (time to amplitude) going on and the manual says you should 
run the self calibration once per month.

The operational check is to measure the width of the internal 1 kHz REF 
OUT, it's supposed to be 500 ns +/- 100 ps, and if not you're supposed 
to run the self cal.  This is a low jitter pulse locked to the 10 MHz 

I guess this isn't your father's counter.

Have Fun,
