Some of you may remember a thread about this meter from a couple of years ago. I just pulled it out of my cupboard again, so I thought I'd get some better pictures.

We had a fair amount of Soviet electronic and photographic equipment sold here in Britain during the 1970s. In fact I found an ad in an early 1970s journal for this very model!

This little meter comes in a steel carrying case, with probes (and yes, the latter really are white and black!):

The English (more or less [Linked Image] ) notes on the rear:

Inside is mostly resistors, of course:

It even has a certificate, which includes the specifications:

Ahh yes Paul,
I remember this meter.
A nice clear meter face, as far as a good simple meter goes, you couldn't beat one of these. [Linked Image]
Rather strange though, how you need to have an external 30-42VDC supply to use the 10k ohm resistance range.
