I think RS discontinued production of these a while back. It seems they have been disappearing from the shelves for some time now. Of course the digital will do the same job, especially with REW.
We believe we may have found a replacement anyway... one that may not even need any corrections down to 10Hz. A little more expensive, but probably worth it to be more accurate. See the Galaxy CM-140. I have ordered one and will be testing it soon.
I believe this is the 3rd time I've read that the rat shack analog meters would stop being made - I think the first time was a couple of years ago...so either they had a **** load of inventory to unload, or them's some crazy rumors going around.
That galaxy meter sure is ugly and quite a bit more expensive at $100....but if it measures well I could perhaps see upgrading to it sometime in the future. I'll be looking forward to your measurements. Do you plan to post them on this forum?
