Can I use a frequency counter in a receiver??

In the receiver you measure the local oscillator. That works but you will be off by the IF frequency. So, when I got my counter like that years ago it came with the ability to be offset by 10.7mhz or 455khz for use in a receiver.

If you post the receiver circuit, we can show you where to connect the counter.

This is a common thing done in HAM radios.
