Capacitance Tester    The JYE Tech Capacitance meter kit was featured in a recent issue of QST magazine (year 2016).  Again, part of the appeal is price, less than $20 including shipping.  This kit is possibly the most useful of those featured among these demos.   It was also easy to assemble and would make a good first kit for anyone having little or no previous experience with printed circuit boards. The photo shows a 36 pF capacitor under test—the LCD reads ‘36.2P’. The display sometimes flickers through a narrow range of values, with the midpoint taken as the capacitance measure.
