I have a working 564 storage scope, an unknown condition spare, and a 561 'regular' scope. I have a photocopied manual for the 564 and a genuine original manual for the 561A.

What do you need to know exactly?

As I recall this scope takes 2 plug in units.
So you can make it a dual trace, sampling
scope, spectrum analyzer and a few more
combinations.. So. depending on what
Plug ins you have will determine what you
can do...Plug ins are available.

Steve is correct. The basic 561 or 564 are just CRT mainframes and power supply with two large rectangular holes in the lower half of the front panel. To act as a usual o-scope an amplifier module goes in the left hole and a sweep/timebase unit goes in the right hole.

Default Funny story ?

Back in the early 80's I was living in Edmonton, AB and was active bidding on government surplus electronics equipment. Between CADC (Crown Assetts Disposal Corp), and the surplus sales at Alberta Government Telephones I succeeded in putting together a fine electronics and RF testing and development laboratory for my fledgling radio astronomy research institute. CADC had this huge warehouse out at a nearby military base and you used bicycles inside the warehouse to get around because it was way too big to walk where you were going. Anyhow that is where I got my 564 storage scope. I was disappointed and greatly inconvenienced by the fact that the government stocked all the o-scope mainframes without any input cards/modules. This made them essentially useless. The modules 'might' show up another auction and you had to be lucky of course to be aware of it and also win the bid. I ended up having to go to a source in the US for my modules for this mainframe.

The only logical conclusion that I could come up with was that this could only have been deliberately arranged for national security purposes. If our country was ever overun by a hostile intruder, they would not be able to use our obsolete oscilloscopes!

Unfortunately for the questionable level of protection afforded by this precaution, any non-profit, educational organizations attempting to outfit themselves with low cost government hand-me-downs as a practical means to their end were placed at significant disadvantage.
