Interstate F-41 Function Generator Manual
I have had this generator for some time but never had a manual. I like that It can put out 40vpp with both negative and positive DC offsets. The top of the sine wave is showing a very slight peak (as if triangular). I would like to give it a thorough calibration.

Does anybody have a manual for it?
Any ideas where to find one?

I sent a note to Interstate Electronics in Anaheim, Ca. May be the same company or purchased a long time ago by somebody else. Hope I get lucky.

Interstate was acquired by Racal Dana. You might give them a shot. I did considerable consulting work with them at the Anaheim factory, but yours looks to be a fully analog model. All my experience was on a fully programable 15MHz 845 model. At one time Bill Bowden was their head line tech, but that was decades ago.
Best of luck to you.

I may not get lucky. The email I had found for customer support bounced back.

Seems they've since been sold/merged/stolen by L-3. Try contacts at this link and ask for info on legacy products.

military gps, gps receivers, rugged displays, gps navigation, instrumentation systems, sws engineering services from L-3 IEC, ruggedized displays, smart bombs, smart munitions

Tucker also seems to have the manual if you have to give in and pay for it.

Hello avincenty,
I've been searching for a manual for an Interstate F44 High Voltage Sweep Generator and was fortunate enough to find your post from 2012. You mentioned that you might scan and post manuals for the whole 40 series. I was wondering if this is something you were able to do. I'm new to this site (joined just to write to you) and was unable to find anything. If it's not inappropriate, could I request that you scan and post the schematic for the F44. Yes, I know I could probably buzz it out, but I'm getting too old to spend my time like that.
Thanks in advance,
