Re: [TCML] Testing HVdiodes

Hi Matt.

One "problem" with using a typical diode tester to test HV diodes is they
do not provide enough voltage.  One possibility would be to build a small
power supply, as Stefan suggested.

However, I would suggest something like a variac or a line/mains isolation
transformer.  This would eliminate many of the HV dangers with using an
OBIT transformer.  BUT the line/mains voltage is still dangerous and should
be treated with respect.
