I just did.
Okay, am I fired??
I do have that SB-610 scope we took off the top shelf. Worked last time it was plugged in 20 years ago.Maybe I will hook it up just to satisfy the complaints
with 1300 Watts, I will have the LOUDEST signal outta San Diego on 6, regardless of the signal cleanliness. It won't be used that often, but it sure will if we get a good East Coast band openning or JA. NO Sporadic E till next June anyway
You don't need to hook up the SB-610, put a whip or a rubber duck on your Tek 475 you will be good to go.
Thanks for taking me along on your adventure Pat (and Sue), I enjoyed it!
It has advantages over any ham scope, including:
Triggered sweep. With the trigger level set to just above zero, the CRT is blank 'til a signal is present. This saves the CRT phosphor and cathode.
The larger CRT is easier to see.
The ver-tickle amplifier needs a response high enough to see 50 MHz. At least twice the RF is a good rule of thumb (the 475 is rated to 200 MHz).
sure allotta parts left over!
The factory supplied spare parts! And to think the labels say "no useable spare parts inside"
