It is possible to check the output level without an oscilloscope ? (I
don't have one yet). It seemed to trigger the Frequency/Stop input of
my 5370B with the Stop level set to Preset and divide by 1. I have
access to a HP3478 bench DMM but I'm not sure whether that will give a
correct level on AC volts at 10 MHz.
Thanks for the link on potential repairs, I think that will need brave
pills before I try torching anything open.
