Has any one have a users manual and/or instruction manual on how to calibrate this tube tester.

I don't even know where the line test should read on the meter.

we currently have a thread on this, viewtopic.php?f=8&t=141579

I'm working on one now and Dan Anderson has a couple good videos on YouTube about the 121.
It uses a calibration card. Cards for the 121 are unique among similar testers.

I have the calibration card, just don't know what to adjust or how.

I have a good selection of cards that came with the tester, which included the calibration card.

I uploaded the Hickok 121 manual to BAMA, if not in the listings yet, check the ftp site:
ftp://bama.edebris.com/uploads/

Any change you might attach the manual via e-mail please.

did you press "alt" key select view and open in local window, you can then copy to desktop
"To view this FTP site in File Explorer: press Alt, click View, and then click Open FTP Site in File Explorer."

I used WinSCP in FTP mode. That reported the error. Browsers just gave an generic error.

no prob, get it out of my dropbox
https://www.dropbox.com/s/xrh8bcpkwzvlk ... c.pdf?dl=0
Hickok 121 Cardmatic Manual.

edit: I updated this pdf, cleaned up some blank pages and added 11x17 schematics to it.
Just click the dropbox link above and over-write your copy if you already downloaded it.

Yes I have the Calibration card, was playing with this after noon, but I don't think the unit is working quite right
thus far. I would love to sell if off if ever find buyer.
I don't want much for it, just break even would make me happy.

I have Stark 9-66A that I use regularly, so no real need for this toy.
