Deoxit and resoldering the switches didn't help last time. I've lost the will to open it yet again, such a hard to service scope.

Hi Dave,
I’ve been having terrible luck, I keep buying broken things that need to be fixed  ;)
A 4 channel 200MHz scope would help me to fix more broken test gear (really a 4ch 1GHz scope would be ideal, but 200MHz is still a lot better than what I currently have), sometimes 2 channels (or 100MHz) just isn’t enough.

Hello,  This is a video explaining why it would be very very useful to have a high quality scope with an inbuilt signal generator.
https://youtu.be/J5zXjZAaVS4 (https://youtu.be/J5zXjZAaVS4)π
The analog front end for the piezo hydrophone element would benefit greatly from a high quality scope front end. Currently we only have a cheap and cheerful chinese USB scope.
If we are able to probe the extremely low level signals with a professional scope front end we will be able to maximise our sensitivity, which directly extends the acoustic listening range, increasing the chance of detecting the extremely rare Hector or Maui dolphin.
In addition, it would be very useful to be able to generate a synthetic dolphin click using the signal generator, and follow this out to a piezo, into out piezo mic, through our analog front end and into the TI ADC.
We are using the LT1792 and LT1464 as our sensitive front end amp. Our current chinese usb scope can not beused on this, so a high quality scope with proper probes would be immensely useful.
Thanks!

I need a function gen and if I'm getting both a nice scope and a function gen in the same package that's awesome but here is the catch: if I win the scope I will giveaway my current scope in a similar contest on my youtube channel.  :-+

Wow, so much competition - more chance of dropping an IC onto a board and it soldering itself on there I think!  The good news is there are a LOT of channels here I wasn't aware of!
I did have a forum account I used a few years ago to ask for some advice but I seem to have lost the account (forgot to change email address - doh).  Had to create a new account to post this.

I'm an electronics student in the UK (london) and amateur radio operator who would love that scope not only for its high bandwidth but also its function generator! Currently im using an SDR as a scope to measure itself, which is a bit hacky but just about does the trick.
you'll notice the euro plug on my desk but that's because it was given to me by a family member to fix, as it emits a high-pitched whine when its plugged in to mains without a load.

Hi Dave. I'm Harshad an engineering student from India. I am also an electronics enthusiast and in need of an actual DSO. I have had DSO138, a $20 cheap oscilloscope for over an year now but now even that has started to give me troubles, buttons have become loose, the dc jack gave up etc. I will be truly very thankful if I get the scope.
I have had good experience using the DSO138 and I ensure you I will make utmost use to learn and to teach electronics through Instructables and YouTube.
Here is my two minute video showcasing my workshop and a few of my projects.
Also the new DSOs are beautiful.........

Currently using my fathers Beckman 20Mhz Analogue Scope. The scope no longer has AC/DC Coupling Switches anymore (Don't Switch when connected to 230V, And a x1 Probe)...

My workbench is an old organ I gutted, so it is too large for an Analogue Beastie.
Please consider me for one of the Dumpster Dives.

Hi Dave!!!

It's 10:24 pm, Please, quietly, children are asleep, that's why there is no sound in the film ...
This oscilloscope will help me in the repairs and creation of new projects, and most importantly,
I am showing my son (who is 2, 5 years old) by playing with electronics which is great,
and I hope that in a few years together we will create great projects,
and this Keysight DSOX1204G 200MHz oscilloscope will help us, which will serve us for a very long long time.

At this moment, this is my workshop in the living room, but I still have a place for Keysight DSOX1204G 200MHz oscilloscope!!!

Hi Dave,

Edit: Alright, found some time today to re-edit the video so that it properly fits under 2 minutes. The full video (http://tinyurl.com/y42dz84x) is still up for an explanation of the instrument mod projects.

Sorry, I just noticed the "2-minute rule"... after spending 50 minutes encoding the 4K video... :palm: Not a big deal though, only watch the first 2:00 minutes! It's more than enough to get the idea... (Spoiler: the only thing I'm missing in my little home lab is a scope and a func gen!).

Cheers!
Danilo

p.s. Apologies for bad exposure, focus, white balance, etc... Just wanted to get this out!

Hi Dave, I am 15 years old and love electronics but my parents think it is waste of time. I just have a cheap $3 multimeter which makes it difficult to test many circuits.
I can't even afford a cheap soldering station. Having an oscilloscope has always been my dream and you can make that dream come true.
Here is my lab (sorry for bad accent)

Hey Dave,

this is our entry for the Giveaway.

We are a group of 15 students from a German high-school aiming to launch our own CubeSat, a small satellite we named "MeginaSat", into Low Earth Orbit.
MeginaSat will transmit data via an optical downlink to our groundstation at datarates of up to 50 MBit/s. As demonstrated in our entry video, our current gear will hardly be up to this task.

For this reason, the Keysight DSOX1204G would really be a game-changer for our project.

More information about our open-source project is available at meginasat.org (http://meginasat.org)!

Cheers,
MeginaSat

FIRST VIDEO OVER 3 MINUTES SECOND VIDEO UNDER 2 WATCH 2 NOT ONE
Hi Dave Although I have been watching you on you tube for a while now this is the first time I have posted on this forum.
It is also the first time I have ever done a video and uploaded to you tube and I have to apologise in advance when I finished recording I noticed I had been recording for just over 3 minutes but that was partly due to being nervous.
As I say in my video this would be a dream come true as I have wanted one of these for many years.
Keep up the good work.
Cheers Markhttps://youtu.be/fxvEeBOxS6M (https://youtu.be/fxvEeBOxS6M)

After not feeling good about braking rules and posting this 3 minute video I have decided to upload a second under two minutes

Chuckles Guaranteed!

I decided to skip my sob story(homelessness, addictions, comas, and other stuff like that) and go for some humor.
I had to remove a lot of the video and trim down a lot of clips to make it 2 minutes, but I don't think it affected what I was going for too much at all.

As for my current projects, I am currently designing USB/Bluetooth HID devices, as well as game controllers for older and modern consoles.
Some of my next projects include audio mixers, midi devices, and photography equipment. All of them which I plan to take to market, or at the very least open source.
I literally have a huge list, that I'm picking away at one by one, every day. That scope will get some good use out of it, but until I finish my first commercial project, a good scope is not in my budget.

Enjoy!

Hey, I'm gorbit, I'm new to this forum, and this is my submission video:

https://youtu.be/GsbzZwdThQ8

I'm very new to EE, but I was always interested in the subject and next year I'm going to go to a university, that's partly and partly software engineering. As I'm a student, I don't have much in the way of a salary so it's my summer plan to buy everything I need for it.
I've actually cleaned my place up a bit, and by cleaning it up, I mean, I've brought everything that isn't supposed to be there to my room.
Hope you like my submission, it would be great help, if I could recieve one of those scopes.

This is my entry:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9MdezzpvdeM (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9MdezzpvdeM)


Thanks Dave for your videos I have learnt a lot! This project started due to your videos about PCB manufacturing.


Note about the featured project: It's DIY made by a guy with not a lot of knowledge.
Lots of mistakes has been done.

A voltage drop on the 4V supply causes the chip to enter off state. On my cheap DSO I cannot set a precise trigger and I can't see the transient.

Nicolò

P.S.: 2 Minutes are really short for no native language people. Takes counts: 34!  |O

I converted a drafty brick outbuilding into my lab over the course of 2 years alongside working and bringing up my young children. It's a passion, a hobby and a dream of my future. One day I WILL work for myself :)

Hi Dave

This is our entry Video of my multimedia electronic students.
We have currently eleven apprentice, in our electronic laboratory, age ranges from 16 to 20.

After the four year apprenticeship they will finally graduate as professional Multimedia Electronic Technician.
Two days they are studying theory at a TAFE, three days they are in our workshop.

We had much fun in filming this movie and a lot of laughter between it!

Have fun Albert

Dave thank for sharing, but only in the last page and giving it to the newcomers  like 1 posts in here :-- :palm:

But of-course it's your decision and thanks for sharing :-+ :-+ :-+

The minimum post requirement was only for the forum post random pick.  There was no such requirement for this part of the giveaway, no minimum value for the Patreon draw and no requirements at all for the YouTube draw (although a means to contact became a necessary factor).

The fact that the prizewinners were students is no surprise.  If you have noticed anything about Dave, you should have picked up on his interest in nurturing the next generation of EE's.

It should also be noted that Dave would have liked to have given away many more prizes - so the two winners were just the fortunate ones.

This video contest had nothing to do with being a forum member, it was open to anyone, the forum was just a convenient place to consolidate all the entries.
What do you mean "last page"?

There are an awful lot of actual contributors that... you know.. actually contribute instead of drop in to e-beg. One post? Bullocks. :wtf: The bulk of people played by what we thought were the rules -- more than one post, obviously being a point in the previous forum submission drawing. Feels a bit like having goal posts moved to be honest.

But hey, there's always this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sri_Lanka_and_state_terrorism  :-BROKE

All right, Dave!!!

Great choices!

I think they will learn a lot and have something to spur them on in their work and educations.

There was NEVER a requirement for the video contest entry to be an active forum member. That was for the OTHER content I ran on the forum.
Read the first post in this thread with the rules.
You are plain wrong.
It's crap like this that makes me not want to bother doing these sort of giveaways at all in the future, you are ruining it for everyone. I put a lot of time an effort into this with practically zero benefit to me, and all you want to do it criticise. But worse than that, you can't even be bothered to get your facts right.

That may be the case, but I think it would have been better for it to go to someone that actually uses the forum and does participate, obviously too late now, but if you are ever crazy enough to do this again, I suggest having the same condition for the videos too, would have saved you a lot of viewing time for a start, if you ignored all videos from people with less than say, 10 posts, that would have cut your workload considerably.

I saw a lot of videos from people that I really didn't think were worthy of the scopes, as well as some where I think the scopes were actually too advanced for where they are currently in their experience, would be like me wanting to get a 20GHz scope... it wouldn't be used.

This was not about promoting the forum, that's what the other contest was for were it was limited to active members.
All I cared about was giving the scope to someone who deserved it and wanted it enough to go to the effort to make a video.

That's why it's judged.
Limiting the contest to regulars does not really fix that issue. If it did I wouldn't bother with the video at all, which is what I did for the other forum contest thread.

To the WHINGERS expressing their displeasure, all I can say is suck it up, shut up and grow up.

Trying to impose your sense of justice on a competition that was clearly spelled out at the beginning sounds like sour grapes.

As I said before, it is no secret that Dave has an interest in nurturing the next generation of EE's.  The video competition allowed just that.  Membership of the EEVblog wasn't necessary - but it's a good chance they were watching to find out about the competition.

The EE world is bigger than the EEVblog - and it would seem rather obvious that Dave is well aware of this and is happy to engage with anyone who has the interest - and in the case of this competition, the energy to put together a video - rather than hold a narrow, parochial attitude.

Also, by making three of the scopes available to people who were not members of the EEVblog, he has attracted more interest - which could attract more membership with broader reach and greater engagement.

It might save trouble by stating some guidelines up front... aimed at students etc. since that seems to be the criteria being applied.

I don't think that would have been appropriate.  While Dave might have liked to see a scope go to a student, as I see it, he could have chosen a video that did NOT fit that profile - but gave a compelling reason for selection.  Dave's "conditions" gave him the freedom to choose however he saw fit.  He did.  I don't have a problem with that.


Dave - don't let the turkeys get you down.  There are a great many of us who appreciate your efforts.

Brumby, I couldn't care less who won the scopes, mate. But look at what you just wrote "Membership of the EEVblog wasn't necessary." Considering you have to be a member to submit sort of blows the doors off that notion. Based on the other drawing having a minimum post count, forgive me if I mistook that as applicable across the board. If you go back and look at the live stream, I'm not the only one that thought this. As far as my "sense of justice" goes, I believe the term you're looking for is humanity. Perhaps you could read up on the Sri caste systems, the Sri civil war, and Sri genocide that has occurred in a country known to sponsor terrorism. All independently verifiable at a scholarly level. Say what you want, but that's immutable fact.


Dave, I don't mean to offend or irritate anyone. I believe the sincerest form of flattery is feeling you can share an honest opinion. We're all here for a common interest in electronics. I think the giveaway was a great idea, but some of the rules seemed to get a bit muddled together. I'm not the only person that made that mistake, as illustrated by the comments in the live stream. I apologize for that. I was excited to see a woman winner as the sciences (especially engineering and electronics) are largely male dominant, which I believe stifles innovation.


As always, I mean no harm whatsoever.

Syntactically flawed perhaps - but I think you get my meaning.  Besides, the winning video could have been produced by a student and have it posted by a tutor, parent, etc.  So, in that case, they didn't have to be a member.

But my point was, simply, that Dave performed the selection process well within his stated parameters - not those that some people thought.

Congrats to the winners!

I don't understand why people are complaining. If someone is deserving enough, shouldn't matter how much they post on the forums. Lots of us might watch EEV videos and lurk the forums sometimes, but not necessarily have enough time to be posting constantly. Doesn't mean we aren't busy working on stuff and sharing/contributing by other means like github, etc.

Congratulations to the winners! Pretty cool videos!

Brumby, I couldn't care less who won the scopes, mate.
Internal contradiction. You are clearly bothered that someone from Sri Lanka won the oscilloscope, otherwise you wouldn't have posted the link and re-stated the issue in your last post. This looks like virtue signaling to me.

When I watched the video of the wonderful student in Sri Lanka, I really wished that she would be selected :) And she is! Based on what she worked on, it's obvious she will make good use of it!
