Thanks to all who provided suggestions on my deviation-setting question.
The MFJ-52 board that I had in mind is no longer available. At $30 it
was in the right price range.
The MFJ-224 was a lot more meter than I really needed and the $170 was
out of the price range that I wanted to pay.
The setting by ear had the right price tag and I may try it later.
Someone mentioned tapping off the IF string of a receiver. That rang a
bell for me. One of my rigs is an Icom IC-251A and it has an RCA jack
on the back labelled Scope. I checked the block diagram and this output
taps off the IF through a buffer amplifier. I have a 35 MHz scope so I
should be able to use this just fine.
Thanks again. I appreciate all the help so graciously offered.
