On most signal generators the sine wave only survives until you connect it 
to something.  Maybe a receiver input would retain the sine wave, but if the 
signal generator is driving a diode that would distort the wave shape.  If the 
impedance is not perfectly matched, that would distort the wave shape.  

The answer really is "maybe" and depends on what you want to use it for.
Knowledge of what you have and what you want to get from it is required 
for signal generators, oscilloscopes, voltmeters, and other test equipment.

Well, if you know to expect it, you can ignore it. No test instrument is perfect and truthful all work with limitations. To circumvent the harmonic problems, I built the Antuino.

I think the results would be too confusing if used as a signal generator. I use one here as an analogue vfo replacement, but I used a low pass filter on the output so I get the same sine wave out of it as I do on the old analogue vfo. I think that is the only way to use it as a sig gen.
