RE: [TCML] meter

I'm not at all sure I would recommend the 37XR.  It looks to me like it cannot measure inductance at all, and the lowest capacitance range has a poor resolution of 1nF.  While it does measure frequency, I would choose to measure L and C over C and F, and the original meter that started this thread (http://cgi.ebay.com/3-1-2-LCD-Inductor-Capacitor-LC-Meter-2nF-200uF-2mH-20H_W0QQitemZ280232348312QQihZ018QQcategoryZ66991QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem ) appears to do both C and L well, and for a bargain price.  It may be that finding C, L, and F capability all in one meter is a lot to ask for since the end of 27XT's.

This is the lowest retail price I've seen for the naked Amprobe 37XR-A
meter, BUT, they've done it by unbundling everything, and like the old sailors
used to say about why ships are called She: "The riggin' and trimmin' cost
thrice what the bloody hull's worth." ;^))  Anyhow, FWIW, here's a  link:

The Amprobe 37XR-A is the current model in that line. It has  pretty much the
same features as well as True RMS and some recording  features. It sells for
about the same as the 27XT did originally, $120-$140  range depending on

It seems (I do not know any of the details  of the story) that Wavetek was
merged with Meterman, then Meterman became  allied with Fluke (sans meters)
and Amprobe picked up the meter  line.

Anyway, I am quite happy with  mine.
