Default Re: Test equipment for valve radio repair

Hi Richard,

Whilst I agree with the other contributors about 'scopes and valve testers being luxuries, you will find that a 'scope will give you much greater insight into what is going on, and unlike valve testers, 'scopes are dirt cheap, especially as you don't need anything esoteric by way of bandwidth for most radio use.

Any mains driven test gear will of course demand greater respect in regard to connections made to radios that don't have isolating mains transformers.

Good luck,
