Nothing, that's why I don't have, and will never, have anything like that thing!  :-DD

Those look a bit modern, at least compared to my [hp] /  Harrison duo, a 6237 and a 6206. But the TTi CPX200 looks at them and thinks they're like Grandpa, as does the Uni-T one. I truly feel I'm close to complete in the DC bench supply department; all I need is a high voltage one, like 320V or so. The  6209 is nice; pity they're always so expensive.

Shown here in the 'check' position with the expected 10 kHz display.

This one's still in the queue...

Thanks ! Looks really nice, would not mind one !!  :D ! I guess they must be rare in expensive, but you will tell me you got it for a tenner in some ham fest, or free found on the side of the road, just to drive me mad !!!  :-DD

Maybe they go for cheaper because they are not branded "HP"  ?!  :-// 
That would help me.

No, that one I found at a surplus place in CA about six years ago.  It had been there for a while given the coating of dust it wore.  Can’t recall what I paid for it, probably between $70~100 (and likely about that again to ship it home).  As far as I can tell, they’re pretty rare at this point - mine is the only one I’ve ever seen in the flesh, though I know of one other guy on the HPAK mailing list who also has one.  Dymec was one of the early companies that HP bought out; look closely at the logo and you’ll notice it is the contemporary HP logo, but inverted.

It’s a cool old beast, but huge and heavy for being a DC voltmeter.

Some of the spare used display boards (no glassware fitted) I bought from Sphere, are from one of those, only confirmed it after buying a manual.
I do have the AC/ohms unit for one, but no matching voltmeter, the knobs have been changed for Philips ones, for some unknown reason.

I don't like pogo pins on hand held test leads, they slip off things easily and short stuff out. Guess how I found that out :)

As for the banana leads, I might actually make some of them. I need them. Thanks for the poke  :-+  :-DD

"And don't you dare waste a bite of that pig-butt, or I'll bite your butts!"  Okay, maybe that bit wasn't as funny as I remember...  :o
