Hi Had, 
nice to hear from you. 
In short, I was not lucky bidding for the time interval counter. 
I have already some counters eg. the 5345A and an EIP 548.
I was looking to complete my measurement equipment with 
a high resolution time interval counter for the evaluation of 
reference oscillators.

I am a very intersted newby in this (for me) new extended area.
You are right, most interesting equipment I see on the north american 
continent, but then comes the big barrier reef between our countries:
the shipment expenses and on top VAT and often customs. 
That mean a few hundred dollars more :-O , :-(

I will not give up and keep watching. 
(In general we are not unlucky!)

Best greetings from Salem,
