HP 8566B Spectrum Analyzer and Oscillator Frequency Response

Software engineer Kerry D. Wong continues his exploration of his 1980s/90s-era HP 8566B Spectrum Analyzer.

In this video, I demonstrated using a spectrum analyzer and a signal generator to trace the frequency response and determine the resonant frequency of a filter or oscillator. This technique is useful when tracking generator is not available. The spectrum analyzer used here is an HP 8566B and the RF signal generator used is HP 8642B.
