Abstract : After many years of helping calibration laboratories solve frequency and timing problems on an ad hoc basis, the Time and Frequency Division of the National Bureau of Standard is offering a new frequency calibration service that is specifically matched to the user's needs. This new service is intended to take advantage of the latest in measurement instrumentation, while at the same time keeping the user costs low. The new service consists of identifying the calibration problem, obtaining and installing the necessary measurement equipment, and finally, a training seminar for the user. The user then obtains corrections for the accumulated calibration data via a telephone modem to the NBS frequency measurement computer. The service can use low frequency radio signals, or Loran-C signals, for NBS traceability.
