recent times, complete with internal functions to **accurately** measure time
or frequency of a displayed waveform. But sadly, that price is way too low
for an **accurate** scope these days.
Since way too much of my limited spendable dollars goes into trains, my
current scope is something even the pawn/recycle shops would turn down as
obsolete. It's just great for finding "glitches" and seeing waveforms, but
far, far from "full featured". Perhaps I'll do better when the kids get out
of College in 2015 or so.....<grin>.
