- $45.00 (Fixed Shipping Cost)
This Hickok 799 "Mustang" Dynamic Mutual Conductance Tube Tester, with the C99 Optional add on deck, is in Excellent Condition.
I am not an expert in Tube Testers but this seems to be a very high quality tester.
I did power it up and checked a 5U4 tube and it appears to be working as it should.
This unit is super clean and has not been used much since it has been stored in a climate controlled environment for the last 20 years or so.
A first generation copy of the manual is included.
After the model 800, The next new tester that Hickok introduced was the transisorized model 799 "Mustang". This was a return to the drug store many sockets/few knobs style but was still a full Dynamic Mutual Conductance Tester. Also unlike most earlier Hickoks, full calibration capability is provided by five potentiometers located under the access panel at the lower right.
This access panel could also be replaced with the CA-99 Adapter panel which added a number of additional sockets and settings.Note that while there are "only" 37 sockets compared to the incredible 63 provided in two paneld by a contemporary B&K model, the Hickok provides three different settings for each socket, providing over a hundred different configurations.
The 799 was not a cheap tester as examination of the craftmanship evidences.
It is being sold as is as described for the family of a silent key
