I wish my Fluke was working (the LCD has gone black). I
dropped my RatShack analog meter a few days back, and
the needle sticks in spots, but a tap on the meter face
usually frees it up.

However, it measures 115v AC correctly.

But, I'm going home at lunch to make a few more careful
measurements of the PSU primary (the PSU is disassembled
now, and I've unsoldered some parts out of the secondary
PCB to test them, so we won't have any of that confusing
the issue).

I'm assuming it's a battery backup unit.
