IMPORTANT !!
\\'hen measuring the resistance t>f a component uirerl in a radio,ampli"
fier, transmitter, etc.. it is necessarl that ther power- sorlrce is turnecl off
'l'his
in the equipment. i s t o p r ' ( ' \ ' e n td a m a g e t o t h c m e t t ' r . It is also
important to make certain that one ol l)oth ends of the device be open
or free. It is l)est to che<'k on th<. scht'matic of the etluipment to be
sure. lf tht'r'e is anl doubt, (lisc()nnect one end from the cir-cuit.

mark, the batterics must be ret)laced.'fhe case
is opened b1'removing the four rubber feet and the fastening scr-e\\'s
at the bottom. The batteries are easilv replaced in tbe respective
compartments. Due to the greilter current requilements from the 1.5
