Hi ozzydvf/3

I asked one of our users today if they had come across this issue before. (They have used a Megger PAT4 dvf/3 for over 10 years.) They hadn't seen the situation you describe although they had seen the measuring supply message before.

He asked if you are running it from a stable power source, i.e not via a generator etc.

It seems odd when testing a radio which must be quite a low powered device.

Hopefully some of our other users might be able to shed more light?

Regards, Richard.
