Test Equipment / Transformer search
« Last post by AirScooter on April 07, 2021, 07:42:06 AM »
Can anybody help me source a transformer for my Fluke 8000A multimeter? I started looking to order one thinking it would be simple and a week later after sending the power supply schematic to a number of suppliers I've come up blank. Fluke has a number for it in the manual its 345637 or 345629. I'm not clear yet on which is correct, I believe one is for the unit with a built in battery supply the other is for the ac only model. Mine is ac only.
Thanks for helping if you can,,,,,,,,

Hello, I am a newbie and student of electronics here in Minnesota. I am also looking forward to get my Ham Radio License in a near future. I found this site while looking for information to repair a IC745 that an instructor gave me. This 745 is in need of all the repairs/mods found in the excellent YouTube videos. I managed to get the RAM board but have a hard time finding a supplier for the 6 and 12 pf ceramic trimmers and the 24 pf NPO capacitor. When I will open the 745 I will look for the values of the electronic capacitors recommended in the video to replace in PLL. These caps should not be a problem. I am now saving a bit to buy a frequency counter and some other expenses......student live!!!
Would you kindly help me identify a site where I can order the ceramic trimmers and the 24 pf NPO capacitors  OR similar?
I will appreciate your input.

My name is Joseph. I am a retired systems engineer. I'm hoping to find someone from the Ham Radio club here in Greenville, NC, to help me with a few things.  I'm handicapped and confined to a wheelchair.  I need some help in setting up the ground for my transceiver and setting up an antenna (It's a TAK-tenna).  I have a telescoping pole that the antenna can be placed upon. I'm a member of the Brightleaf ham club here in town, and I reached out to one individual but didn't get a response though I know for sure that they received my request because I asked if they had received it, and they said that they had.  I'm willing to financially reimburse any individual for materials and time if necessary, just as long as I can finally use my radio.  :)  It's been over a year now since I got my radio and all three ham license levels, but I haven't talked to anyone on the air yet.  Any help that anyone can provide will be greatly appreciated.

I just picked this unit up for a song and a dance, 30 dollars to be exact, it cleaned up real good and looks like new.....

 This is my first non tube scope , now I'm giving away my age LOL.... I had a small stroke 9 years ago or so , and I'm getting back into the electronics game.....

But that's not my issue .....  My calibration point is only showing 1 Volt....   Any suggestions ????

Howdy Buddy,

I really enjoyed you working on this radio.  I think the electronic build up on the negative side is due to electron flow from positive to negative.  Maybe you can answer me a question.  I just recently got my upgrade from Technician to General Ham license.  I got a Kenwood TS-430S HF rig with a dedicated power supply PS-430 to go with it.  If I want to use 10 meters and pull up a 10 meter repeater how do I use a CTSCC tone since my Kenwood radio has no CTSCC tones???  Thank you for all yer videos.
