Hello,

Would anyone happen to have a schematic/instructions for the DeVry 16004 signal generator ?

Thank you

Bill

Pics? If not listed somewhere as DeVry, it might show up under another badge.

Some home study courses used rebadged commercial kits (such as Bell & Howell provided Heathkit), while others designed their own. Some equipment could be very basic, designed more to train the student than remain useful on the graduate's bench or in the field. Schematics and circuit info might be limited to what was covered in the course itself.

In the case of NRI, their Conar line of gear was sold separately to the public without the training course.

DeVry Technical Institute dates to 1953, begun in 1931 as De Forest Training. They're still around today.

Ask them, it might be good to throw them a loop just to see what they say. 8)

I wonder if any of the DeVry training films has survived? And digitized too? It would be fun and no doubt educational to watch one.

Wow that has scam written all over it. No address for the company, you only get the rifle if you sell some perfume, and in general the ad is very inconsistent. I am afraid to send in the coupon.

Of course, True Detective wouldn't let them print anything but the truth.
