GR116D / 5870s tubes
My first 100 MHz counter, built using the GR116D miniature tube (ca. 1977). One tube has been replaced with an ITT 5870s. The unit has sat on the shelf above my workbench ever since, and although I now have faster counters, it remains useful and is still working at time of writing (Sept 2021).
