  1. Hi

    I have stumbled over a nice old Tektronix 465 in a extreamly good condition.
    I looks bran new, and everything works perfectly.
    I am just wondering about when is has been made. The serial number is
    708891. Is this a new or old production? I have found a manual for 465 but
    it refers to a serial number that starts with a Bxxxxxx.

    It was probably made in the UK or Holland
  3. 7xxxxx is definetely Heerenveen/Netherland prodution. UK/Channel
    Islands would be 1xxxxx. Late unit, not latest but one of the last
    made in NL. Has all updates/changes the Bxxxxx manuals show. So the
    Bxxxxx Manual is perfect for this scope you mention .

    Looks it has been taken well care for, so you will enjoy it for a long
    time. The electrolytc capsin LV pwr supply might cause some trouble
    sooner or later, but this can be easily fixed.

  4. Thanx. Yes, it says on the rear: Made in Holland.

    Even though my Philips PM3217 is newer the 465 is a vbetter replacement and
    in a better condition.

  5. Tek465 clearly outperforms a PM3217. And workmanship, durability: Tek
    465 is really preferred.

    Later Philips model got better, compared with a Tek.

    My personal opinion: Sell the Philips. Keep the Tek, it will serve you
