    The 8566 newer? It's ancient. However, when they replaced ours with first a Rohde & Schwarz FSM30 we made them leave our old 8566. A couple years ago that was replaced with the MXA but they put our 8566 into the engineering drawings now and it has a dedicated antenna while it sits on top of our safe. I love its one button ability to do peak search and max hold and stored settings with 2 button pushes. The MXA does more but I hate having to go thru menus.

    The 8566 is so good that when we got them in the 80's the USAF PMEL guys would steal ours so they could calibrate their calibration equipment.
    The 8566 is newer than what I can personally afford. And I like knobs better than menus.
    When I was hired, they were using something even older (round screen). In recent times,
    equipment must be calibrated by methods traceable to NBS, annually (one of my side jobs).

      Oh yeah, any of them are more than I can afford, if I still want to live in a house and eat food. I get to play with cool expensive stuff at work. I, on the other hand have a $2 walmart analog multimeter.
