Dip Meter

    Dip meter: In the vacuum-tube era (also known as my youth) dip meters were called grid dip meters and were considered a useful if not essential part of the radio tinkerers toolkit. Now it is hard to think of a persuasive argument for owning one, which may explain the paucity of choices available to purchase.  Other instruments, such as an antenna analyzer, LCR meter, oscilloscope and function generator, frequency counter or meter, etc. serve as well or are superior in many situations.
