I will take the scope then, as everyone said that they are good scopes, I
will make the space for it somewhere (I live on a sailboat, but I have room
for it at office I think).
I also found a pdf manual for the 535/545 scopes.
Thanks for all the help of this list, my electronics knowledge is all self
taught, and has lots of holes.
I have used a scope before, but someone helped me set it up, I understand
all the controls and such, just not about the different kinds of
I still have a few questions though, perhaps the list can help:
I assume that this is a single trace scope, can it be used for tuning a
coil, or do I need a dual trace?
I do not really understand about "plugins", which ones do I need? there
seem to be a lot of them out there "looking on the net" but I am not at all
sure what this scope has (if any). my friend did say that it worked, and
had a trace, but nothing about plugins. do I need plugins to use the scope,
does this scope even use plugins? I did not ask my friend about them, as I
just learned about them today from the web, and I will not see him until
friday when I am supposed to pick it up.
also what kind of leads/probe do I need, I want to use it for audio, and SG
tesla coil use.
Someone mentioned that I should remember the scope is grounded, I assume
that it would be, as most things in metal boxes are, but how does this
apply to it's use? (sorry if this is a dumb question)
