My assumption is that if these are typical NPN/PNP transistors and you are using a digital multi-meter that might even have a diode test mode, you should be safe to test these junctions without insodent.

I need to test some 2N5643 and MRF315A power transistors for RF (VHF). I have been told that using a DMM may damage them and they need very specific currents and voltages to test.

Does anyone have a good and simple test bed or method for testing a transistor before they are installed in a circuit?
