Default Re: Heathkit RF1U Signal Generator Restoration

Great write-up, David, and thanks for sharing a good test gear success story.

I don't have any Heathkit signal generators myself, but I do have a trio of restored Heathkit VTVMs which are still quite useful. My first 'proper' HF rig was a Heathkit SB104A. I think Heathkit was the Elecraft of its day in terms of quality kits.

At one stage I used to speak on a daily basis on 2m to Pat, G3MA, a lovely chap who in retirement still worked for Heathkit in Gloucester.
