If your selective level meter has a tracking generator output it can serve
as the signal generator (may need to be amplified a bit) as well as the
detector. I use an old General Radio 516 bridge (recommended by John
Andrews - tnx agn John) and an HP 3586C selective level meter with good
success. Makes for an interesting mix of old and new test equipment sitting
side by side!

Dear Peter, LF Group,

I am not certain, but I believe this is an audio-frequency bridge - if
it does work at 136k, it is probably with reduced specification.

Selective level meters work very nicely as RF bridge detectors - Since
it is only null detection that is needed, a receiver with "S" meter or
output meter would also work fine. All you have to do is make sure there
is enough attenuation between the bridge and RX/level meter so that the
local QRM does not overload the front end.
