You misunderstand the basics. The uncertainty relation (Dt.Df>=1/2)has
nothing to do with a physical measurement error, in the sense of using
imperfect equipment. The assumption is that the measuring equipment is
ideal. The issue is with the representation of signals.
In one case a signal is being characterised in the frequency domain, and
in the other the signal is being characterised in the time domain. The
mathematics show that these domains are not completely compatible.
