Would be fun to play with an SDS7102 for a week. Read the owners manual carefully.

OOOOh a 475. I spent 10 years with my face glued to one of those. We made hoods out of cardboard patterned after the full size scopes. I wound up with a newer 488. It is probably just me, but I still liked the 465/475 better. We had a 466 and of course, 7800 and 7900 mainframes too. Not exactly hobby bench size.

Anyone who thinks they are measuring better than 1% on a scope should go back to community college and learn electronics. Scopes are for looking at waveforms. Eyeball work. Get real, look how thick the trace is, than look at the specs.

If you buy a really cheap scope, You will regret it. As shown here, some of the best ever made can be had for a song. They are big, heavy, no storage, no capture. But for basic bench work, unsurpassed. I liked the triggering on Tek over HP. Never was fond of Philips.

Hi all,

& thanks for considering & replying. I guess then that my starting point will be an analog oscilloscope possibly with a storage function. Any of you know which brand/model(s) is best at triggering at low frequencies? It should be a small(er) oscilloscope as my table space is limited ...

For more detailed work with FFT etc. I will consider the idea of using a soundcard together with software on the computer.

Thanks again for replying & Happy Easter ;-)
