Lay it on me. Questions, comments, angry venting, etc. :)

-Daniel

Edits & FAQs:

1. "Why isn't country XYZ included?" - I really wish we could include every country on the planet, but in order to comply with local laws & regulations we simply cannot. We work with our legal team to make sure we include as many countries as possible while remaining compliant.

2. Unlike cyber week, you do NOT have to be affiliated with a company.

Can anyone tell me why INDIA was included in 2016 scope month but not in 2017 ,i was trying my luck this year untill i saw the country list terms and condition  :-[ |O
i know law issues and stuff bt shouldnt it also be  a part of 2017 like in 2017 

link to 2016 scope month terms and condition :-- http://www.keysight.com/upload/cmc_upload/All/Rules-Scope-Month-Giveaway-Jan26-2016.pdf

Yep, same here. Was waiting for the reminder email.....

FYI, after the, uh, incident there won't be any more reminder e-mails for the Australia contest.

Good to know... a day after not seeing an email! (my fault, of course...)


But seriously, who holds competitions on a Tuesday? It is literally the busiest day of the week. That's 3 i've missed now! (i'll take the blame for the first...)

Thanks to FireFlower for the forms tips.

I won a scope last Friday. I just filled the forms and emailed them back.

You're welcome,

I can start to see the pattern winning scopes on the Thursdays and where the first name is picked up, game is hard and rigged  :box:

Edit: Watched the videos daily but failed to understand there was a Finnish name because pronunciation was very off.  Mainly because Daniel didn't put any emphasis on the first syllable of the last name.
Sounded like Paslasihlah instead Pa-si [small pause] Las-si-lah (if you know Japanese, then pronounce it similarly putting emphasis only on the first syllable of each word).

Mine own name was pretty good actually, "Marqqu Hyttinen", probably because pronouncing Markku naturally forces you to pause between the words.

I knew it! I knew it the whole time! The sweepstake is rigged!

There is only one more to say:

I will believe in the result of this sweepstake... - If I win!    >:D

Has anyone here submitted a video for the "Test to impress" contest this year? I have done so on Monday, and Youtube says there was not a single view in the USA or Australia.
I'd understand if the videos get submitted to the jury later, all at once, but it looks strange to me that really nobody takes a look. Any views on your contributions?

Maybe I am just a bit paranoid because last year they published my video about a week later than the others. Reason was that there was some kind of difficulty with the encoding of my video, and I was not contacted even though I sent in the video way before the deadline ended...

"8.   Winner Selection.
For all winners a panel of judges selected by Keysight will select the winner. The decisions of the panel of judges will be final and binding. Judging will take place on or about April 1, 2017."

From the Test to Impress -terms. So you will probably see a hit between April 1st and April 15th (winner announcement).

Good luck!

Thanks, Ollihd!
I think I remember Daniel saying (on March 13) there were a couple of submissions already, and he will share some clips of them during the rest of Scope month. For me, this implies that someone will take a look at the videos before April 1st.

So I still wonder - should we see some views from the US already, and should we suspect that the submission went wrong if there are no views? Any other contester here?

I don't think I can enter any of them, same reason too busy on Tuesday.
Lunchtime (ish) sounds like a great idea, until you take into account Australia's three basic timezones.

I haven't had time yet to take a look at all of the Test to Impress submissions, but be assured that we will watch and consider all eligible entries

I am working on my video entry now!

(kidding)

As we approach the 1st anniversary of the maiden Test to Impress voyage - I am finally dealing with a project that will max out the MSOX6000A 6Ghz scope in bandwidth and use many of the fancy analysis tools - real time eye, jitter, and all available digital channels to decode (2) i2c and (2) CAN busses for a new commercial product. I have also been able to do some slick SMPS designs including my first Polyphase boost and buck converters. The power app (with a number of specialty probes) got me into some advanced areas.

For those that remember the video entry, the goal was to move up professionally and that is exactly what is happening. The project I am working on would have been totally out of reach without the ability to test, debug, and analyze it. Just purchased the first 6Ghz probe - 3 to go......

Literally a life changing event. Go make a video.

Thank you EEVBlog for all the support in the Keysight Test to Impress Giveaway voting!

Would you believe i missed it again... due to work. Resigning myself that i might just have to buy a scope like everyone else does!

Same and same. Was stuck in a very interesting (:=\) meeting.
Damn Australian 'game-of-chance Vs test-of-skill' rules. A chance draw would be so much fairer for everyone.

I managed to submit an entry in pretty good time but in hindsight probably could have worded the answers in a slightly better manner, either way I’m still taking out a lottery ticket for this Saturdays tattslotto draw of twenty one million just to be on the safe side. I’d probably have complete heart failure if I won anything anyhow and could probably do with an ECG plugin module now that they have permanently chucked me out of hospital, keeping the nitro spray close and handy just in case.
