    What do you think about this oscilloscope?

    http://www.parallax.com/detail.asp?product_id=28014

    I was also looking at www.picotech.com
    They seem to have real good ones.



    Best receiver ever?
    I think so

    From a technician standpoint, I don't think it's too hot. Only good for 20vp-p, only 20khz bandwidth, and the clips on the leads BLOW. But for checking for clipping, it might just do the trick.

    20Vp-p won't be enough to check out the clipping on any larger sized amplifier.

    used Tektronix stuff is pretty good, and shows up on Ebay in good shape a lot.

    one of these days, I'm going to get my hands on a good dual channel 'scope and an RF spectrum analyzer...always wanted one.

    What about the handheld scope parts express has? I will be using it for clipping.

    Re: What do you think about this oscilloscope?

    I think the handheld one is the velleman handheld IIRC... not great resolution, but might do the trick for what he wants.

    Shown here: http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=320-290



    What the f00k happened to this place?

    Re: What do you think about this oscilloscope?

    My dad had an O-scope. Kept it from the military days. It had a screen that looked like a sonar. And wieghed a good 50+ pounds. Was that just an old ars model or different than these handhelds.

    Re: What do you think about this oscilloscope?

    hey guys, thought i'd give you an update on that ivie unit, the link that InHumanAcura posted.
    i emailed them to ask the price, i got a response back stating that i should call the number, and that i can get $50 off if i mention my name. i thought that was cool, so i called up and asked about the price, are you guys sitting down?
    $1600!!!! lol, i almost crapped myself, i had to have her repeat to make sure i heard right. but dont worry, you get the ipaq with it its a nice unit and i'm sure there is a lot they did to develope all the software and the hardware, but thats a little steep, but hey, i get $50 off.
