Workshop Equipment

Here’s a list of the test equipment I have acquired from either friends, radio fairs, flea markets or the usual online auction sites:

Tektronix 2445B:  150 MHz, four channel oscilloscope with alphanumeric CRT readouts of the vertical and horizontal scale factors, the trigger levels, time-difference measurement values, voltage difference measurement values and other auxiliary information.  It has auto setup and automatic measurements.

Philips PM 3217:  50 MHz dual channel oscilloscope.

HP 8640B – Options 001 & 003:  The ultimate in analog signal generation.  Uses a mechanical cavity tuned oscillator and achieves phase noise specs that are outstanding.  AM and FM modulation.  Has factory fitted Option 001 (Variable-Frequency Modulation Oscillator) and Option 003 (50W reverse power protection).  1985 build US model.

HP 8640B – Options 001, 002 & 003:  The ultimate in analog signal generation. Uses a mechanical cavity tuned oscillator and achieves phase noise specs that are outstanding. AM and FM modulation.  Has factory fitted Option 001 (Variable-Frequency Modulation Oscillator), Option 002 (1100 MHz range extension), and Option 003 (50W reverse power protection). 1979 build UK model.

HP 5316A:  100 MHz universal counter measuring signals over a range of DC 0 to 100 MHz and AC 30 Hz to 100 MHz.  With two independent input channels for time interval measurements.

Keithley 197:  A six function, 5.5 digit resolution auto ranging digital multimeter.

GW Instek SFG2110:  10 MHz bandwidth DDS function generator with sweep, AM/FM modulation and external frequency counter.
