Elecraft XG3 Programmable Signal Generator
Elecraft’s XG3 programmable signal generator is a versatile signal source with four calibrated output levels that covers the 160 through 2 meter bands. It’s ideal for receiver calibration, sensitivity tests, signal tracing, and as a VFO for home-brew projects. The USB interface cable allows computer setup of frequency, sweep range, speed and steps or jumps to bands, output level and more! It’s also useful outdoors—for antenna evaluation, field strength measurements, micro-power CW beacons for T-hunts, etc
