Crap-tastic material

How about start exploring the true fresh models of 2013, or is your plan to distribute a pdf about them in 20 years from now?

I am suggesting to start your own Blog and post what ever please you, in it.

Your nostalgia could not be served by this forum category.
a) Equipment Usage,
b) Soldering,
c) Techniques,
d)and Reviews


Oh and the most importand, my time cost money, stop wasting it.

As I see it, it is your own time you are wasting, just bugger off and leave us alone.
Perhaps you would be better off telling yourself how good you are on your own forum.
Oh! I see you already do that! Good Idea that having a forum with members by invitation only. Presumably you have to be
a) Greek
b) Extremely well off
c) Agree with everything the forum owner says.

Oh and most importantly worship the ground you stand on.

Mr. Kiriakos, it is not your duty to enforce the rules of this forum. Leave it to the administrator and moderators. If this document is deemed irrelevant by them, they will close or delete the topic. Else, it can stay.

Everybody, please keep it civil.

If I were to buy a scope, my budget for it would probably mean Id be buying a "historic" piece.

Cool read. I have several older scopes A Tek 453, Tek 468 and a Tek 2213A. I use them all. All I work on is vintage audio stuff so those are all I will ever need.

In my side of the pond, older scopes of Hameg are still dominant ones for vintage audio.
But about getting spare parts for them gets harder and harder those days.

The modern scopes in 2013 - 2014 are so much better, and they do worth the investment.
I can see the waveform and eight measurements (of parameters) instantly.
This is remarkable, so much data on screen and totally effortless.

Aside from Tek & HP most older scopes are fairly easy to repair as they are build from standard parts. The hardest parts are obsolete transistors and the odd obscure IC. My old Gould OS300 used mostly discrete logic that was still available; the analog frontend would be the hardest part to source for.

As for Tek, some were worse than others for those hybrids. I specifically went with a used 2225 (a few years ago) where that would be less of a problem. Sure, lower BW, but more durable. Not a mainframe scope, but anyone remotely careful isn't going to damage even this one, which is actually quite decent for a "cheap Tek," as some considered them back in the day.

Default Re: A history of oscilloscope development in Vilnius

As I get back into the hobby of service repair after many years away from it I realise it's time to build up some basic test equipment again. For example, I'm currently fault finding an electric piano and need to look at the digital bus signals. In the 'old days' I'd reach for an oscilloscope I would have borrowed from work. I don't have that luxury now. So I was exploring these adaptors that turn your laptop into an oscilloscope. Are they any good? Remember, I'm not looking to repair rocket ships - just fault finding at relatively low frequencies. Any thoughts and opinions I'd be very interested to hear.
