No. I got it off of eBay. I'd have to look it up (it's out in my shop). It came from China as I remember.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I've got a couple of those $10-$15 Radio Shack multimeters - one out back, and one in the tool box in my van. They'll do 90% of what you usually need one for (especially with probes like for RF snooping). In my shop/home lab, I needed one with additional functions - like peak hold and digital output - which gets occasional use. For more really complicated stuff I turn to my good digitizer scope. IMO, a good meter is something that as you get more experienced, the more you'll appreciate the 'extras' - especially if you don't have access to the really good equipment. Mine isn't the best unit available, but it's accurate and precise enough for what I do - and it has adequate safety stuff built in.
I probably grab the meter about 80% of the time... my scopes come next (probably 10%), followed by the other equipment.
