      As far as scopes go, I would love to have a Tektronix 465 scope but I am not ready to plunk down the cash being asked for one in decent shape.  I will keep an eye out for a bargain.

      Hi Kirk,

      I guess the only real advise I could make about oscilloscopes, is go for the best you can afford. You could probably pick up a decent 'professional' one for the same price or less than a new one aimed at the 'hobby' end of the market.

      Scopes like the Tektronix 465 / 475 are extremely good, used them a lot in my professional work, however they certainly cannot be described as 'hobbyist' and are not the easiest to master using at first. Many of the features like delayed timebase etc would probably only rarely be used hobby wise.

      I would have thought it would have been better to go for a more 'basic' scope. My thoughts would be, dual trace (a must), bandwidth, minimum 20MHz.
