Bill asks for lists of items people will bring. He and I have talked
about oscilloscopes, for servicing computers. Also, we have in this NG
a "thread" about servicing an Apple II. Seems to me that an
oscilloscope would be the next instrument to use to check out the
problems with that computer.
So I'd like to know if MARCH members even use oscilloscopes to fix
their computers; and if anyone planning to go to Delaware in October
would be interested in buying one. They are fragile enough, and
sometimes heavy enough, that shipping is discouraged.
Some of the ones I have are "rack mount" which are low and flat, maybe
19 inches on a side; some are "desktop" which are about the size of
what they used to call a "minitower PC" with a handle on top. Prices
would be something like $50, not including probes which are usually
priced from $20 and up depending.
