HP 606A RF Signal Generator

Post by Greg Davis on Sun Nov 01, 2015 7:58 am

I just got back from a driving vacation trip from TX through AR, TN, MS and LA.  Along the way I found a nice little antique store in AR that had a couple of things I was interested in, including this HP 606A RF signal generator.  I haven't opened it up yet, but it was sold as "unrestored".

Test equipment can be as interesting as radios. Good score!

I have one of those, but mine is a 606B. The "B" is hybrid tube and solid state. Transistors in the power supply and XTAL calibrator. Had to replace one of the twist lock electrolytic caps, for as big as it is it was not an easy job. The classic Hewlett-Packard boat anchor!

Out in my nick of the world and didn't stop? Seriously, that is a good find. Sometimes you find stuff in the places you don't expect.

I found my 606B at a antique mall here in Ohio. It was marked as a "computer device"!
