Jump inside a 1953 RCA VoltOhmyst for a look around. Antique Electronic Autopsies are a visual celebration of electronics of the past.
Being a young'un, only in my early 30s, I wasn't familiar with the VoltOhmyst. I have to be honest, I bought this thing purely because the name amused me. It was only $15, so even if it is only ever an interesting conversation piece, it was worth it.
The RCA VoltOhmyst wv-97A
The 1953 RCA WV-97A VoltOhmyst is a meter that is considered "service-grade." This means it works well enough, but it isn't a precision instrument.
The top two dials are fine adjustment, while the bottom two switch modes.
This unit has been used for sure. The worn face is a testament to that.
