This is a precision fragile, extremely expensive tool that is unlikely to be useful on a day-to-day basis by most members. Hence induction is required and it is not permanently located in the Hackspace.

The basic specification is 1MHz to 18GHz, and more than 1V(!) at the input will instantly destroy it.

Possible uses: measuring signal purity, clock stability, interfering radio signals (e.g. 4G destroying Freeview reception), RF filters, transmission lines

If interested in using it, contact Tom Gardner.
