The Signal/Tone Generator part of the tester also has a built-in red LED indicator which will illuminate when the speaker is connected at the other end or when a short is detected in the coaxial cable.

The Coax Cable Tester is powered by a standard AAA battery and which is included so that the tester is ready to use when you receive it.
