1960's style guerilla homebrew 6 Hz - 2 MHz function generator with 4 transistors

A very neat construction project from Miroslav Cika. Miroslav's project generates square waves up to 2.22 MHz and pulses with a variable duty cycle from 1-49% and 51-99%. Output is either 5 Volt TTL levels or an adjustable 0-3.38 level. 

This piece of test equipment could be very useful for designing and debugging digital electronics. The design is flexible enough that it can be modified to suit your needs.
