View Full Version : new used O-scope

07-14-2016, 08:34 PM
My brother (also a ham) made me an offer I couldn't refuse, give me a working HP 54600-A oscilloscope for shipping cost ($30).

He got it from a friends estate, and had no use for it.

Now the question, I haven't used a scope in 45+ years, anybody know of a good "beginners guide" for scopes?

Also, any favorite uses for a ham station?

Keep it simple for my somewhat deteriorated brain capacity.

Lots of user manuals on Google. It's been over 50 years since I put my hands on an "O" scope.

Now THAT is what brothers are for!

There are more things to check on. My brother moved truckloads of stuff from his friends house.

Hoping that an AF/RF generator is in the mix there somewhere.

Gee. Can I have your brother for a while? (Kidding of course)

So what's the QTH on this mother lode?

Wondering if it's worth the drive...

kansas city, but he is a bit of a parckrat, i was surprised by the offer.

what i really wanted was the kenwood ts-480, but i bet he would want more than shipping!
