Default 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.
Doc

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.

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