RF Signal Generator
RF Signal Generator is rated 3.25 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent valueThis generator offers a decent value for the money spent. The operation is straightforward and it does what I required. The dial markings are not very accurate so you will need an external frequency counter if the work you're doing requires a precise frequency but once the frequency is set, it is very stable if the power is left on to keep the temperature relatively constant.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unbeatable for the priceStone simple design, vague analog dial, but half the price of a well-known competitor! If you want something better you'll have to pay a lot more money. A whole lot more. If you're a hobbyist it may be all you need, and it actually looks modern next to vacuum tube gear :-)it drifts, but not too much if you're aligning a vacuum tube boatanchor receiver. It does have a xtal socket for an HC-6/U xtal which I assume would be more stable. Built-in 1000 Hz modulator and provision for external modulation. It's basic. It's inexpensive. Deal with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK But Not AccurateI ran this thing by a calibrated standard and found it to be not very accurate. It is plus or minus 10 to 20% of the selected frequency. I removed the cover and found no way to set calibration. No trimmers and such. Internally it is a simple design with a two gang variable capacitor and 5 coils around the selector switch. It seems the only thing that can be adjusted is the dial pointer. There are two screws on the shaft of the variable capacitor. I suspect all of these under different names are the same.It s too bad that there are no adjustments. If it had, this would be a good instrument for the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Built to last but a bit dated.The circuit is very simple and the unit will probably last decades before it even needs servicing. It has several problems though, it can't be used for tuner frequency calibrations because it is difficult to precisely calibrate the output frequency. It can't transmit FM signals, though some poor quality FM receivers will still reproduce it's AM modulated signal. The crystal socket only accepts a type that appears to be obsolete.
