I have a Tektronics cro mdl 7603 frame with a spectrum analyser mdl 7L14
the first mixer stage is not sending ,I assume the diodes are shot.
I have information on fixing it but I dont have the time. Can any one tell me where I can obtain the complete mixer stage unit,instead of pulling the mixer unit apart and changing the diodes?

This is the second write of this as the third world NBN is having its monthly hissy fit.

There is a deceased estate of a guy in our Club that worked for Tektronics; I have not got an inventory of his stuff but it was all complete.

There is at least one in the Club that has the nous to fix it.

Hi Ray,

I have the 7603 with 7L13 Spectrum Analyser. Mine is working okay, and I understand that these front-ends are very sensitive to power input. I have built a 'protective' circuit for the input .... DC block and a couple of diodes .... so far, so good.

Can't help with fixing it ..... but I would like to know how you get on, as I'm sure that I will make a mistake one day.

What is mdl?

Have you searched for the circuit board in the States?? There are a couple of Tektronics Forums in Yahoo, but 7L13 info was very limited.

Marc, is this stuff available to non 'Club' people .... eg me??

Cheers, Ian

You might need a cuppa tea and a few hours to get through them all in one hit. NOTE: Some of these articles are written by members of Vintage Radio and Television and where this is the case credit has been given.
