  1. I was fortunate enough yesterday to be gifted with mint condition
    8552A/53B/55A plug ins and manuals for this spectrum analyzer series.
    Unfortunately there was no readout-mainframe available for it. I last had
    my hands on one of these rascals my first job out of college in the Teledyne
    microwave lab and haven't used one since.

    Two quick questions.

    1. The manuals say that they will plug into any of the "140 series"
    mainframes. So far as I can tell, the three mainframes in this series are
    the 140, 141, and 143. It also appears (looking at ebay) that the 141T is
    the most popular of the series. Can anybody give me a quick and dirty
    opinion on which of these mainframes you would pick and why?

    2. Does anybody in Northern California (say, from Fresno north) have one of
    these working mainframes that they would be willing to swap for pictures of
    old dead presidents? Or perhaps in partial trade for an extra 8552B that
    came with the package? Or ???

    IIRC, the 141 has the analog storage CRT, the 140 does not. Don't know about
    the 143
