G4B04 -What signal source is connected to the vertical input of an oscilloscope when checking the RF envelope pattern of a transmitted signal? A. The local oscillator of the transmitter B. An external RF oscillator C. The transmitter balanced mixer output D. The attenuated RF output of the transmitter


G4B05 -Why is high input impedance desirable for a voltmeter? A. It improves the frequency response B. It decreases battery consumption in the meter C. It improves the resolution of the readings D. It decreases the loading on circuits being measured


G4B06 -What is an advantage of a digital voltmeter as compared to an analog voltmeter? A. Better for measuring computer circuits B. Better for RF measurements C. Better precision for most uses D. Faster response


G4B07 -Which of the following might be a use for a field strength meter? A. Close-in radio direction-finding B. A modulation monitor for a frequency or phase modulation transmitter C. An overmodulation indicator for a SSB transmitter D. A keying indicator for a RTTY or packet transmitter
