Hello John,
I have several HP 5334's (A and B), and there is a trick how you can get  
from 2ns (2E-09) resolution to 10ps (1E-11) on these great units.
To measure a 10MHz reference at 100micro Hertz resolution:
   * Do an offset of 10MHz (subtract 10MHz from your  reading)
   * then set the gate time to its maximum of 99 seconds.
Voila, the unit now displays the difference between it's internal OCXO to  
your source in 0.0001Hz resolution.
I don't have a unit here with me now, but let me know if you would like to  
know the steps to enter the -10MHz offset.
