Ok, I've been trying for some time to locate a resisitor for my vtvm. One of you gentlemen was nice enough to mail me one, but it never arrived :-(

Unfortunately, I don't remember who it was.

I had one that I was able to scavenge out of a junk meter, but It's not within 1%, and a 10 ohm resistor measures 8 ohms with it installed

Anyway, I'm looking for R4, a 9.75ohm 1%, for the RX1 scale.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

-John

Looks like 9.76 ohm is the standard value:

Mouser doesn't seem to stock it, but I'm sure someone does. Where are you located, and what are the local electronics stores?

I have one; you can have it for postage. Just PM your address.

Glendale, CA.

Closest is Electronic City Inc. I work there.

Wow, that was fast!

One other question, do you know the cable that was used in the probe? It's too thin to be RG-58, and thicker than RG-174.

I don't know what the cable was. Might have been microphone cable.

Try the RG58A/U, more flexible than the others RG58 types.

For a VTVM, I would think just about any kind of single-conductor shielded cable. RG58 should work fine, but it's a bit heavy.

cwr*; We're neighbors--I'm in Sierra Madre. Have you been to Fry's? If you can stand being there, they do have a pretty good selection of stuff. There's also the old Dow Radio store in Pasadena. A few weeks ago, I went to the SCARS meeting at Ford Electronics in Buena Park. Ford seems to be one of the last of the real electronics stores.

Yeah, but it also has to fit in the old strain releifs. I measured the outside diameter at .15 inches.

I can't stand fry's, and good luck finding any employees who know what they're talking about.

I was at the ford meet as well. I was the young guy with the glasses, and the burgandy electronic city shirt.

This is kind of funny. I'm shipping a scope probe to Pixellany and a resistor to cwr56. Tell me when they arrive.
