  2. Incredibly cheap. Almost half the price of equivalent units like the
    Instek/Goodwill 10MHz model.
    Would be interesting to get a look inside.
    Hard to beat against a used model indeed, if the specs are what you are

    Dave :)
  3. **'Tis cheap. I doubt that it uses a PDA tube though. Still and all, 10MHz
    for 160 Bucks is hard to beat. I wonder what the wholesale price is? I'll
    make a call tomorrow.

    Don't know about that, I only paid $220 for a Tektronix 475A off Ebay, 250
    megs bandwidth, and probably one of the best scopes made by anybody
    anywhere. Its old but works fine.

    ** You know SFA about anything.

    ** Till tomorrow maybe - then it is beyond repair.

    No spares, super complex design.

    Total fucking disaster waiting to happen.

    Just like you - SHITHEAD.

  7. Yeah, well anything more complicated than a side opening toaster or
    replacing a jug element is beyond your capability Toaster Boy. Know wonder
    you were fascinated by the toy CRO.

    ** This is not ever going to stop:

    The Rutmaniac Arse Bandit has **NEVER** told us how much money
    the Thai pal he "imported" into Perth ripped off from his credit card and
    bank accounts.

    He has refused, over and over, to say why he never reported the crime his
    Thai boy lover committed to his Bank or to the WA police.

    ** This post of his on " asia " from 1997 explains the event:


    " WARNING - Tourism dangers for Gay Tourists in Thailand

    In my case I was coerced into sponsoring a Thai into Australia. I was
    lead down the garden path into a false sense of security about my
    relationship with this person. His aim was clearly to get me to purswade
    the Australian Embassy to grant him a visa. Once here I didn't exist after
    he drained my bank account and ran my credit card into overdraft.

    Alan Rutlidge (Perth Western Australia) "

    ----------------------------- ------------------------------------

    ** The 1997 date pretty much co-incidences with the enactment of
    Section 50 BA of the Commonwealth Crimes Act.

    This is the law that finally made engaging in or promoting under age
    sex tourism a criminal offence - max penalty 17 years in jail.


    The age of consent for gay males in WA in 1997 was 21 years old.

    Come on - Arse Bandit - we all need to know if you were being

    ** I do not care how many of your vile, criminal colleagues you organise
    to intimidate me.

    It only makes you look so much WORSE !!!

  9. WOW, This is the third time you've posted this to the same newsgroup today.

    Gawd, you must be bored shitless by now.

    Yep, I bought one - very nice unit, easy to use, appears well made, and is a bargain for the price.

    I have also just bought one of their 20meg CROs and that too is fine (I found I needed 2 channels
    afterall) nice units for the money


    PS My 10 meg unit is for sale - only 3 or 4 hours use, still under guarantee - all offers
  11. Just plugged a 19" LCD monitor into my Agilent 6000 series scope at
    work, now THAT'S a scope display! Next stop, the LCD projector on the
    wall :->
    Damn impressive scope the 6000.

    I went through the process of considering a better s/h unit instead of a lessor new unit, but in the
    end felt that while one of those better cros would be great if it worked and continued working, the
    cost of any repairs would probably break my bank, as I am not cluey enough to fix one of those, and
    would/might need a cro to do the repair.

  13. A new CRO is nice, has that nice "new CRO" smell, and you get that
    warm-fuzzy as you peel the plastic protective cover off the front
    panel. Just like a new car, everyone should own one at least once!

    Now you can get yourself an old second hand high bandwidth one as well

    Dave :)
  14. **Now that's a twist: Usually, guys brag about their red sports cars, or the
    size of their guns. You're using your CRO as a penis substitute?

    Mind you: I am jealous. Those Agilent 'scopes are kinda nice.

    ** My "no" was not rhetorical.

    The screen size is perfectly OK for a single beam CRO.

    The detail and resolution of such a CRT screen is far better than that of
    LCD scopes that cost $2000 and with screens many times the size.

    ** See above.

    A battery operated NLS MS-15 (15 MHz) mini scope has a 4 x 5 CRT screen
    where each division is 0.25 inches.

    That is only one quarter the size of the DSE CRO but still quite usable as
    it is very sharp.

    ** Two questions:

    1. Is there an external means of rotating the trace - ie make it horizontal
    in spite of the earths mag field.

    2. Is there any spec for the maximum *safe* ( ie non damaging) input
    voltage on the vertical amp?

    An interesting observation since you know SFA about me, still I suppose that
    you are another one of these people who never lets facts get in the way of
    an opinion however stupid it may be.
    Since I have been using it for the last 3 years, it has paid for itself
    Funny, I could have sworn that Tektronix is still in business anyway second
    hand spares are easy to obtain, you just need the skill to use them.
    Obviously the prospect of something like that scares the shit out of you.
    Well stick to your tricky dicky toy scopes, if you can't handle the real
    tools its probably best that way. I suppose that anything faster than 10
    megs is beyond your comprehension anyway and trying to use a delayed
    timebase would strain your little brain beyond meltdown.
    You must be one of them interlekchals to come up with such a profound

    I suppose its like they say, just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean
    that they aren't out to get you.

    Keep on taking the pills, it looks like you may have skipped a few doses.
