The 3200B VHF Oscillator is designed for general purpose laboratory use in the frequency range of 10 to 500 MHZ. Typical applications include: receiver and amplifier testing,; driving bridges, slotted lines, antenna and filter networks; and use as a local oscillator for heterodyne detector systems. It is completely self-contained and housed in a modular cabinet which can be adapted for standard rack mounting.
A push-pull oscillator is housed in a rugged aluminum casting for maximum stability and extremely low leakage. Six frequency ranges are provided for adequate bandspread on the slide-rule dial. Amplitude and pulse modulation may be obtained by the use of suitable external sources. The RF output os coupled through a wave guide below cutoff variable attenuator.
