Subject: SR785 repaired 

The unit was repaired and returned to the 40m. Now, with a DMM, I measure a DC offset value that is ~1% of the AC signal amplitude. I measured the TF of a simple 1/20 voltage divider and it looks fine. In FFT mode, the high frequency noise floor levels out around 5-7nV/rtHz when the input is terminated in 50 ohms.

I will upload the repair documents to the wiki.


The "source" output of the SR785 has a DC offset of -6.66 V. I couldn't make this up.
