Share your useful testing apps, I'll start

I know we all do some testing on our benches and not everybody has all the professional testing equipment. Either we're not on our well equipped bench or you need something on the fly so we at times have to improvise. With so much at our fingertips in this very technological age that wasn't at our disposal 15 to 20 years ago, I'm curious to see what some of you fellas have as quick smartphone or tablet tools. Share yours if you will. I'll start with one I've used a few times to put a test tone into a mic. 20200220_212241.jpg

Yeah a great subject. A quick and easy way to verify the audio amplifier circuit in a radio is to touch the center pin on the volume control, if you hear a hum or noise this verifies the audio circuit is working. Try not to touch any thing else in a tube radio as high voltages are in there. I use a screw driver that has black tape insulate the shaft exposing the tip.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.

    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.

    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
