Default Re: Your thoughts on modernising old tech?

Hello Everyone,

I added an ALC circuit to my old Boonton-202C generator:

It is very convenient and increased the ease of use of the generator.

The Boonton-202 generators were the "standard" VHF lab generators in the '50s and early '60s, before they were replaced by the HP-608:

It was also produced by HP for a while when they purchased Boonton:

I still use my BRC-202C generator, it is perfect for tuning up BC-FM radios, though it does not go below 54MHz without the companion downconverter that I do not have.
