    6F7, VR150 plus 80 rectifier)
  • A.C. Mains
  • Original cost unknown.
NOTES
A signal generator by a company I've not heard of before, with a serial number that probably suggests there were not many made. Being American I expected to find more valves than the typical British counterpart and was not dissapointed !

One very unusual feature is that the entire chassis is made out of copper, presumably used with the idea that it would have superior performance at high frequencies, though in reality I doubt that it really is.
SERVICE DATA Yep, thanks ! You can download it from the service data section.
CURRENT STATE The case has a few scratches and the panel meter certainly isn't the original although it doesn't look too out of place. There are also signs of work inside, mainly in the form of replaced wiring and 1956-vintage main smoothing cap.

There is also a socket for a crystal, which is missing.
WHERE FOUND Liberated from the June 2003 Harpendon BVWS auction for £4.

Wonder if American wax caps are
as bad as the British ones .....
