The Marconi 2955B Radio Communications Test Set


Purchased at Government Auction 2006 09 12, fully operational, except for failure of internal diagnostic 2.0 with an error code of 21. Seems to work for what I want it for anyway, so "whatever" as the kids say.


The Front Panel


Front View of Marconi 2955B S M L XL

This is the front panel of the Marconi 2955B. The 2955B is a universal receiver that goes from near zero (hundreds of kHz, I believe) to 1GHz. You just type in a frequency, and it tunes it in. And it's GPIB controllable!

(Full exhibit coming soon)
