Hi everyone.

I was evicted back in July (horrible experience, lots of back story, but no sob story) - I've managed to just about get my mental health back to almost normal. In the process, my equipment has been shipped off into storage units somewhere (I do not drive, have no income - govt being an absolute NIGHTMARE what with my inability to travel, and them unwilling to SANELY process my claim for UK "Universal Credit"), so I am here with my parents right now, have been since July, zero income, and a few boxes of my bits and bobs.

Long story short, I have managed to find my JYETech scopes - "DSO Shell" and "DSO112a", but neither have probes with them (they are in storage - and inaccessible for now).

I am trying to keep my mind occupied, mental health has suffered a lot. My appeal is this - can anyone spare some basic 1x/10x scope probes (BNC ends) and maybe post them to me, within the UK? I am not one to ask such things usually, but I am the kind of chap who likes to help others, and would gladly do the same if someone else was in this situation.

No pressure, no guilt, but I have no income - LITERALLY none - and no way to pay you. If you are willing to do this, I would be most grateful indeed to you, but if not, no worries.

Take it easy have a lovely day.

Matthew.

Surely you can scrape up 15 quid to order a pair from China? You could probably earn that much fairly easily doing random jobs for people. Stuff like assembling Ikea furniture or raking leaves.

If I could I wouldn’t be asking. It’s complicated.

cut BNC 50 Ohm cable one end off

Solder  4950 Ohm series resistor at end of cable

Use scope BNC at 50 Ohm input not 1 meg

Voil;a a wideband zero cost Zo X 100 probe.

Impedance is just 5,000 Ohms but fine for digital and LV work
