Hi. OK, I'll admit that I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer. For example, when I went to College, there was NO SUCH THING as a PC. Fortran as the programming language we were used, and on punch cards to boot!
Although I have lots of 'rice' radios, my true love is the 'boatanchor'.
Yes, I have a LOT of them. I have always done my IF and RF alignment using some good Signal Generators.
However, lately, I have read a lot about using a 'sweep generator' to align the IF stages. I DO have a couple of nice HP 'scopes. I even have several 'sweep generators'. However, most appeared to be designed to sweep the IFs of TVs and FM radios.
I DO have an Elenco, but the manual just flat SUC*S!
There was an article in Electric Radio on how to build a Sweep Generator, but after reading it, it appears the Elenco might fit the bill.
I am interested in a <50 KHz to 2 MHz sweep range. Nothing I have been able to locate tells me HOW to do the alignment.
Can anyone PLEASE help this 63 yr old to maintain his equipment?
Please reply off line for 2 reasons:
1. I'm embaressed enough and
2. we don't need to waste bandwidth with my stupidity
