What do you mean by 'set-up'? You mean to use it, or to calibrate it?

OK, there is a thread on this forum exactly for this. The thread name is like Textronix 22xx or 21xx you should be able to find it. Has several good text to do what you want.

BTW I think it is IO-18 rather than 10-18....

Default Heathkit Model 10-18

Hi Jannaman
Ifound the thread pointed out on oscilloscope and it may be what i need,also i saw the Heathkit model0-10 you spoke of ,but the unit i have is a later model mine has calibrated graticule. I do have a question . In the vertical channel it saids frequency response is +1db from 8 cps to 2.5mc and +1.5 to -5db from3cps to 5mc ,is this the bandwith of my unit ??
once again thanks very much for you help.

Dusk

2 Dusk:

yes, the bandwith is 3 cps (=Hertz, Hz) to 5 Mcps (= 5 MHz).
From 8 Hz t o2.5 Mhz signals the "error" in displaying is lower .

So it's just fine for most of the audio work. But keep in mind: This scope is old, needs proper warm-up time (appr. 30 minutes) and ofcourse is not as comfortable to use than newer ones (e.g. Tektronix 2215, etc.)

You might find some more info (schmeatic, handbook) at this site:

bama.sbc.edu

Look for heath because your model is a Hethkit scope.

Download is faster from bama.edebris.com.
