    G'Day All, I'm interested in purchasing a used oscilloscope for
    general consumer electronics repairs (all types). Therefore, I would
    greatly appreciate your feedback regarding the minimum specifications
    needed for the unit. Also, any specifics on what to avoid would be
    helpful. Thanks in advance.
     
  2. Buy it on eBay and you can get a 100 MHz dual trace delayed sweep scope for
    < $100 if you are patient. Why buy less specs to save a couple of bucks?

    Been looking at this.Anybody have one??

    I would always like to have an analog scope around or at least a 10 or 12 bit
    vertical resolution scope. The Hamegs still have both digital and analog in one scope.
    I was trying to get info on the above scope for a friend.

  4. Both amateur radio swap meets (hamfests) and Ebay can be of much
    help along these lines.

    For general use, as you state, I would suggest a Tektronix 460 or
    470 series for a portable/bench combo, or a Tektronix 7603 for bench
    alone.

    If you go after a 7603, you will also need a 7B53 time base module,
    and a 7A26 vertical module (both readily available).

    All the above are well within the $75-$250 range, depending on
    vintage, features, and condition.

    Happy hunting.
     
  5. Go for a a Tektronix 465 or a 475, you'll get these for a reasonable
    price. And these scope will serve you well.

    just my 2 cts.

    hth,
    Andreas
