c'est quoi la plateforme de dons/cagnotte qui prends le moins de comissions ?

it's my birthday in like 8 days, and I want to make a whateverfund to get monies to buy new lab hw, but I feel guilty of asking money ;_;

ICOM IC-475: turning a pot related to noise floor makes the s-meter behave more like it should.
I need a new signal generator, this radio needs a full calibration :(

farnell doesn't even have more than 10V voltref, and mouser max 36V :|

so my DVM needs a 9.5V, 95V and 950V voltage reference for calibration

where the fuck I am going to get a 950V voltref without selling an arm

c'est quoi la plateforme de dons/cagnotte qui prends le moins de comissions ?

waiting for my brain to fully boot then I can get back to that radio

previous owner for some reasons connected the S-meter bulb on another point than the one it should have been originally.

I wonder why too, but that shouldn't impact the RF, it's just a power rail, if it had issues, pretty much all the radio would be dead.

did some more checks on the radio, found a cold joint on one RF connector,,,

will disassemble the filter unit tomorrow, might find some more funny things too

so apparently kim is dead but not dead but dead but unrumored, probably replaced by a quantum cyborg by the NSA

so,,, how do I diagnose transistors, in circuit, when I don't know shit about the voltage they should be :/

y'a des client pour mtg pour apprendre a jouer a ce truc ?
genre pour apprendre pas juste ¨démerde toi avec un deck et des humains en face¨ ?

the ICOM IC-745 service manual is so BADLY scanned that all the voltage which are white lettering in a black box are just plain black

thanks so much, absolute garbage

also sad news my frequency meter DVM addon need huge calibration and is off about ~2V

I need to look the service manual for which equipment I need to calibrate it.
