I just have to ask so I can perhaps learn something....   I have a basic LodeStar SG4060b RF signal generator with a very rough-cut analog frequency adjustment.  When I want to set it with any accuracy, I just zero beat with one of my nice digital receivers that is set to the desired frequency.  I then know that my signal generator is right-on frequency, regardless of its analog dial setting.  This approach is very quick and I think is providing the level of accuracy I need.  Please let me know if I am missing anything here.  Thanks!
