Hi Keith,

This is a typical signal generator used in a TV repair shop back in "The
Olde Days". I don't own this brand (but have 3 or 4 others in the
collection) but the brief specs you gave are a dead give-away.

I _might_ have some advertising or catalogs for Superior stashed in my
scads of tech literature up in the library but it would take awhile to find
anything. (Egads, I need organization!) The other fellow who mentioned he
might have magazine ads could be a help along with perhaps others here.

I use my old early-50's Jackson and a 1950-51 vintage Hickock to do some
repairs to my old TVs in the collection.

Old test gear is very interesting I think. Good luck with it.

Regards,  Chris
