|Thank-you for information on these European instruments! EMG, along with many other manufacturers, are basically unknown in USA. Similarly, I suspect there's a long list of US companies that are seldom encountered elsewhere. Tek, HP/Agilent, and Fluke are probably world-known, but I doubt that Keithly, Lavoie, Dumont, Hickok, Fairchild, Alfred, or Boonton are. |
What bugs me is that this story is 50+ years old. Electronic manufacturing in USA is a diminishing portion of the economy. And I'm probably brain damaged from using lead-bearing solder!
