Micronta FET Multimeter
model 22-208

Micronta FET meter28 range electronic multimeter model 22-208. The circuit incorporates two field effect transistors and has an input resistance 10 megohms on DC voltage ranges. It requires one 1.5 volt type c cell and one 9 volt PP3 type battery. Working, Korea and Japan, date 1968/9.

This is one of several instruments given to me by Deborah Waters, which belonged to her late father. It has required no attention other than cleaning, lubricating the switch mechanisms and inserting batteries.
