Procrastinating is not the best thing to do!!!!!

I just recently decided to purchase an RS meter after holding out for 4 years, much to my dismay RS in canada has discontinued the Analog meter. My question is the digital meter worth getting or should I order the analog from RS in the states??

Also if there is anyone in this fourm that lives in Canada outside of Ontario can find an analog meter at the local radio shack please let me know and hopefully I can find a source in Canada.

thanks

I think it's just what you favor - a bouncy needle or fluctuating numbers.

I have an uncle who has the digital, and I hate it. He likes it only because he thinks it's "cooler".

They perform nearly the same, within .5dB...

Colin,

Did your uncle tell you the digital meter has a time-lapse feature that effectively eliminates both bouncing needles and fluctuating numbers?

You can set it to take readings from between 1 and 199 seconds. Afterwards the meter will tell you the measured low, high and average readings over that period.

It is cool!

No, sorry. I copied that into notepad a long time ago from this forum and have used it ever since.

Wayne - That IS cool! Needles are so retro, though....
