Chapter 2Calibration Tools and Generators for Testing

Many of the radios in this book will include adjustable inductors for intermediate-frequency transformers and oscillator coils. Therefore, special adjustment tools are required. This book will include not only radio projects but also circuits that require test generators to test and verify some of the electronics theory. For example, the generators will be helpful in testing both radio-frequency (RF) and audio-frequency amplifiers. Other test equipment, including a volt-ohm milliampere meter, an oscilloscope, a capacitance meter, and an inductance meter, will prove very useful for building and troubleshooting the various circuits.
