One of the easiest things to do is to use the LTC (on the M7856) and
write a small program that counts at 60Hz (or any sub-multiple) on each
"tic". The counter (if in R0) will be displayed on the console lights
when you're in a WAIT.
One thing you want to check is to make sure that your backplane is *not*
wired to have an M787 be the LTC (mainly for the grant chain).
Otherwise, you'll have to use the M787 and disable the LTC function on
