Merry Christmas! The Gift of Oscilloscopes

I was very lucky to receive an awesome new oscilloscope as a Christmas gift this year, which will replace my aging EICO 460 vintage scope.

It’s a Rigol DS1102E digital storage oscolloscope with 100MHz bandwidth, built-in voltage and frequency measurements, waveform functions, and the ability to interface with a PC and export scope traces. This will make my life significantly easier when working with FM radios, and also make documenting the process on here easier as I can directly show the oscilloscope’s output as an image file.

I’ve been busy with a new day job, although my radio repair work has been continuing in the background. Look for several new updates in January. Merry Christmas, everyone!

    That looks sweet! I was always a little confused how oscilloscopes worked but found an infographic that describes it pretty well. http://www.tek.com/learning/oscilloscopes-a-look-inside
