Default Old Tektronix booklet

Radio stations expect equipment to last a generation or two so paperwork hangs around an eternity. Cleaning out files today I came across this treasure from the mid-Seventies in new condition and thought someone might get a kick out of it. Shaggy techs, white tees and open collars, a Dynaco A25 and a MacIntosh. It's a walkthrough on testing a mono Mac with Tektronix's 5L4N LF spectrum analyzer.

Excellent! I'd ask if you are going to scan it, but that would be a breach of copyright.

Default Perfectly dated!

Even the straight guys didn't have ears then.

In those daze, I woulda thought he looked cooly serious and mature.

There was a Tektronix book on tube circuit design called "Typical Oscilloscope Circuitry" revised edition, 1964, with about 300 pages. No author listed.
Not hard to find or expensive last time I checked, a couple of years ago, on the used book search sites.

Let's make some subscripts for that picture. I'll kick it off with "Hmm, that's funny..."

Those speakers in the background, I've got a pair of them but mostly use them as weights when I'm gluing a diaphragm.

Double check in the book though. Some manuals specifically allow a certain amount of copies. I had a computer manual that allowed free copying for service use

Has anyone noticed the striking similarity between the fellow on the Tek front cover and rdf's avatar?

They share a 'Fine' bloodline. The scanner's at work so maybe early next week, I'll look into the copyright aspect.
