    ** Remember when someone advertised a component tester with a free, 20 Meg
    CRO chucked in ??

    BTW

    The term "scope" is American jargon.

    Do you call prawns " shrimp " by any chance ?

  2. Perhaps, but it's funny how the majority of the colleagues I've ever
    met also prefer the term scope, kinda rolls off the tounge better than
    CRO in my instances I think. The two terms have always been used
    interchangeably in every place I have ever worked. I have noticed a
    slight bias, with the term CRO being used more often for the physical
    device, as in "where's the 'effen CRO?". And scope being used more
    often for display related stuff, as in "check the waveform on the
    scope". Of course, it always seems to be a "CRO probe", not a "scope
    probe".

    Always call a meter a DMM do you?

    Dave :)

    I agree with Phil, probably because we're the same age and only got
    exposed to all the Americanisms after we'd been doing electronics for
    quite a lot of years.

  5. Guess it depends on who you interacted with when you were taught. I
    know lots of (Australian raised and educated) guys of yours and Phil's
    vintage who never use the term CRO.

    ** No " perhaps " about it.

    It is 100%, * positively * , Septic Tank jargon.



    ** You must have a lot of " funny " colleagues then.

    FYI - dickhead:

    The word " scope " refers to that famous brand of soldering equipment sole
    here in Australia for many decades.

    Not a good idea to get the two mixed up - it could lead to lotsa tears.



    ** A very smelly red herring indeed.

    Like most of your dumb posts.

    ** All wild heresay of the dumbest sort.

    These same mysterious non experts likely never used a soldering iron in
    their lives.

    Compewter geeks for sure.

  9. Hey, have we found another button to push perhaps? ;-)
    Nope, really good ones in fact that work in the real world where it
    doesn't matter if you call an oscilloscope a CRO or a scope.
    I've heard that's a common mistake in the toaster repair trade, but in
    the real world it doesn't happen.

    ** What an arrogant, PITA Yankophile moron.



    ** An obvious, very silly lie.


    ** This PITA Jones MORON has NEVER lived in the "real world".

    Just like any other ASD fucked compewter geek, his home address is in
    cyberspace.




    ** ROTFLMAO !!!!!

    This PITA Jones MORON has never lived in the "real world".

    Just like any ASD fucked compewter geek, his home address is in cyberspace.


    Plus his pointy little head permanently stuck up his fat arse.

    LOL !!

    Would be a pretty silly thing to do if it's a D'Arsonval movement :)

    They use the abbreviation of "'scope"? I'm just interested to know.

    Bob
     
  13. Either "scope" or "oscilloscope". Very occasionally "o'scope", but of
    course that one should be banned! ;-)

    At least it wasn't "That little box like a small TV with the wiggly

  15. What if they have no cathode ray tube?

    Good point. :) I just say, "Where's me Tekscope?" because that's
    what's written on it.
     
  17. I only have one of those crappy (but expensive) Tek LCD 'scopes' these
    days but I still call it a CRO. I have not used it in the last 4-5
    years, perhaps I should sell it..
     
  18. Its a TDS 220. I see ebay reckons $900, i think i paid near on $2000
    IIRC just after they were released. I bought it for field work. Sigh,
    I got ripped, but it did pay itself off.

    Mine's an old THS720 handheld which has paid for itself lots of
    times, despite a few annoying bugs in its firmware and an intermittent
    problem associated with one BNC connector which is not a replaceable item.
