Tektronix 191

The Tektronix Type 191 Constant Amplitude Signal Generator is a sine wave source introduced in 1966.


please add

The 191 covers frequencies from 350 kHz to 100 MHz in seven bands. The output amplitude can be adjusted in calibrated steps from 5 mV to 5 V in three ranges.


The oscillator is a Colpitts oscillator using a 7119 tube.

A peak-to-peak detector made with two GaAs diodes measures the swing of the oscillator and produces a DC feedback signal that controls a series voltage regulator that supplies power to the oscillator.

The calibration procedure in the manual makes use of a 661 to accurately view the output waveform.
