d. Turn the 20 dB ATTENUATOR switch for the Type 491
to the ON position. Adjust the variable output attenuator
on the signal generator for an approximate 3 mV display
response to the 65 MHz signal.
f. Remove the signal generator signal and the test os-
cilloscope connection. Reconnect the Sealectro connectors
and cables to J120 and J188.
9. Apply a calibrated signal within the frequency range of
band B through a 20 dB attenuator (Part No. 011-0086-00)
to band B RF INPUT connector.
h. Set the Dispersion to 10 MHz/div. Tune the RF center
frequency to the applied signal frequency. Adjust the

amplitude should not vary over 1.5 dB, or a total of 3 dB
from the maximum to minimum amplitude point, with a
constant amplitude input signal to the RF INPUT connectors.
Adjust the MIXER PEAKING for maximum signal amplitude
for each display window.
This is not a conclusive check because the local
