Multimeter Shed Workshop – Sunday 10 Feb

The shed workshop on Sunday 10 February was attended by five OMs. Several weren’t able to be present due to a conflict with the Vintage Radio Society. The conflicting time will be remedied for future shed workshops.

The topic for the workshop was provided by Bernard ZL2BD – an introduction to multimeter calibration.

Our measurements and calibration errors

Those attending the workshop brought along their multimeters and these were calibrated on the spot by those attending using an averaging method. Most of us were surprised how poorly the analogue meters (including an AVO) fared, and just how well our modern cheapie (and not so cheap) digital multimeters actually did.
