Re: [HP-Agilent-Keysight-equipment] Two Simpson VOMs!

Richard R. Pope

Hello all,
I was thinking about this and this why these Simpsons are important to me. When I joined the AF I became a Ground Radio Serviceman. One the instruments that I learned on was a Simpson 260. I hope everyone can understand why it is important to me that these two instruments end up in the hands of a collector. I cherish them and I want to see them preserved.
GOD Bless and Thanks,

me a reasonable offer before I die so that they don't end up in the

Just braggin' !
Neat! I've seen these 360s around and I've long been curious about
them, but I know nothing about them. I should dig up the schematic.

Some time ago a friend gave me another
clamps-to-the-bottom-of-a-260 option, the Model 657 milliohmmeter
adapter. I've not tried it out yet, but it seems like an interesting

I wasn't aware of the Model 650 transistor tester option. That
sounds like it might be very handy!
