[time-nuts] Spec An for phase noise measurements

I am considering getting a new spectrum analyzer so I can make better
phase noise measurements than with my 8596E.  I've looked at the 8566B
and the 8562 and 8563 since I need coverage to at least 6 GHz.  The
8566 is huge and ancient, though, so I think I'm leaning away from
that one.  Anybody have other suggestions?  Some of the Advantest
units seem to be reasonably priced on ebay, but it is hard to figure
out what their phase noise performance is.

Also, what is the difference between the A, B, and E models on the
8560 series?  The A models are much cheaper on ebay.
