A 'general purpose' DVM was purchased by me at Radio Shack a
little over a year ago... I use it mostly for checking diodes, and my
75m frequency. Although, it will read up to 600V, and not more
than 4 Mc. A pretty good deal for $29.95. Auto-ranging,
with capacitance checker, as well.

Same thing on the RadioShack.
