|Review Summary For : Elecraft 2T-gen Two-Tone Test Oscillator|
|Reviews: 2||MSRP: 59|
Elecraft's 2T-gen provides a standard two-tone (700 and 1900 Hz) audio
source for testing of SSB transceivers and linear amplifiers. This type of
testing is almost universally used as a measure of transmitter linearity for
amateur radio equipment. Linearity impacts both SSB fidelity and the amount
of SSB splatter that causes adjacent channel interference.
The 2T-gen provides sufficient output (0-200 mV) to be connected directly to
the microphone connector of almost any transceiver. Transmitter linearity can
be determined by observing the 2-tone envelope on an oscilloscope or
station monitor. For more exacting IMD measurements the output can be
measured using a spectrum analyzer; qualitative measurements can be made
using only a ham-band receiver. Full instructions on how to set up the 2T-
gen and other gear are included in the manual.
Like Elecraft's other mini-modules, the 2T-gen is quite small: the PC board is
just 2.5"W by 3.5"L. Rubber feet are also included so the unit can be used on
the workbench. The unit includes an on-board 9-V battery.
