One of them was this guy, I guess he had good luck on his back pocket as he puts it:

https://www.eevblog.com/forum/contests/keysight-scope-giveaway-63957/msg883435/#msg883435

I think it's great he won since he is a supporter and a contributor and probably not a patreon supporter so he was not on the 2nd drawing, and if he is both an eevblog supporter and a patreon one at the same time, then the more karma to him  :-+

Dave - I liked your method for this. Seemed fair.

Congratulations to the winners of these 'crusty' scopes. It is the most awesome crusty scope I have ever seen.

Scope's going to Lithuania, one of the BM235 meters is going to the US, one to Sweden.
No idea where the scope and BM235 Patreon prizes are being shipped to.

The only problem with the draw, no one knew what the number(s) they were until Dave looked it up. I for instance was 1528-1533, but had to pause the video later to actually know.

Thank anyway Dave for the 1 in 298.5 to win a scope, maybe I'll have more luck next year.

His new order of meters has just arrived, so you can now have your own.
They are nice little meters.

I do have a Fluke 289, and I'm planning to get a Keysight U1461A soon. The Bryman is only for collection. I'm more waiting for his self designed meter.

Congrats on the winners! It was actually quite fair in my opinion, at least much better than a lot of contests I see like "comment below!".

Winners (I dont see a list anywhere so here you go):

Scope:
- electr_peter (Forum)
- Stian (patreon)

Meters:
- BloodyCactus (forum)
- plesa (forum)

I am a bit sad that I wasn't entered with 10 posts, I guess it required more than 10 posts. Wouldn't have won anyway but I was close!


Maybe next time! Good luck to others for next time as well!

As you can see - I had over 1000 posts and 12 entries, but no cigar scope.

I had guessed my odds might have been around 300 (maybe 400) to 1 - but at odds better than twice as good, I can't complain.  It was fun to participate!

I like the way this was done  :-+
And a big congratulations to all the winners  :-+ :-+
You got yourselves for fine test gear.
I would had loved to win a multi meter. My old Fluke has fluked out.  :-DD

Tried for an hour to get Dave's attention lol. I think he finally saw mw when I answered the question about Alans call sign.

Nice job Dave, The multiple entry idea was good for the countries left out of the Keysight Scope Month draws.

Congrats to everyone soon to be receiving their new... er OLD... CRUSTY... DUMPSTER scopes.  BTW Dave you
find anymore of those in the dumpster, let me know lol

Even though I've been a member for a long time, I rarely post so I was limited to the one entry, but I did have 1
entry... and as they say, you can't win if you don't play... so I was happy to have the one chance.

 :-+ :-+ :-+ :-+ (I have four hands)
