Re: *** Need Help Choosing a Tektronix Scope ***

Hello Edd:<p>Thanks for the good Info and also the approx date of the scope- Tektronix themself seemed unable to tell me when it was made (see copy of their latest reply below this message), you'd think if anyone would know it would be the actual Company that manufactured the product, sigh...<p>The ...

Re: *** Need Help Choosing a Tektronix Scope ***

Hi Dean:<p>Yes, you would think here in "Noo Yawk" that there would be many places that exist where a scope can be evaluated- and I will check on that, but its been my experience that there really arent that many good places in the area that are very knowledegable when it comes to repair on vintage ...

Re: *** Need Help Choosing a Tektronix Scope ***

By any chance, does anyone know of a reputable place in the New York area that I can have the scope I just bought sent to for Evaluation?<p>As you can read from the copy of the Tektronix message that I displayed in my previous post, they only do Calibrations, they will not perform any repairs to the...

Re: *** Need Help Choosing a Tektronix Scope ***

Walter had also written to me a response regarding my questions about the various Tektronix models:<p>Fred,<p>The 465B/DM44 is one of the very best incarnations of that scope,. I'd put them in this order of desirability:<p>best 465B/DM44 465B 465M 465 (s/n >B200 000)<p>avoid: 465 below s/n B100 000 ...

Re: *** Need Help Choosing a Tektronix Scope ***

Hi Edd- well, the seller is in California and I'm in New York, so I dont know if thats really close in terms of shipping cost.<p>The Ebay buying price was decent, but the Seller cant say for sure whether the scope needs a Cal or not. I did ask Tektronix about evaluating the scope if I sent it to the...

Re: *** Need Help Choosing a Tektronix Scope ***

By the way, I had picked up a good book a while ago "Digital Electronics Guidebook" by Myke Predko which has alot of goofd projects in there. He wrote a chapter on getting test equipment and recomended the Tektronix TDS-210 - he said a digital storage scope is certainly better to use for digital pro...

Re: *** Need Help Choosing a Tektronix Scope ***

Hi Dave, I have considered the option that a new scope- a brand other than Tektronix, might also be a good buy in terms of a getting a high quality product at a very reasonable price. Thanks for mentioning Protek, I will check it out. What is the Warranty period on their scopes? How is the operating...

Re: *** Need Help Choosing a Tektronix Scope ***

Thank You Miguel & Dean for the very informative responses! <p>I need to make a correction to my post. The scope I had mentioned that was available on Ebay is NOT the 2236 but it is the 2246. Actually the exact Ebay item is Auction # 2548012801. The seller said he could sell for $750 total, what do ...

Re: *** Need Help Choosing a Tektronix Scope ***

Hi Miguel:<p>Thanks for the reply, thats the type of information that I am looking for- which Tektronix models are the better ones to get and which to avoid (unreliable, hard to service...) I'd also like to know the years that they were made, is the 465 a 1980's model or does it go back to the late ...
