Just because I have lots of posts, doesn't mean I'm any good at this!

What is that Agi scope like? Doesn't say it comes with any probes.

I'm guessing they were developing the Shield there?

There is an Agilent DSOX3000 scope

Someone on twitter mentioned it must be the Icera fab?

The scope and MXG looks tempting.

There seems to be a lot of older Mobile communications test gear for 3.5-4G handsets which would be worth the price of a small house when new  :P
All the nice usable gear will go for stupid prices so unless im missing something these auctions are really only good to watch.

All that mobile communications test gear cannot really be useful for anything else than it's intended purpose :(
Those power supplies, the multimeters and the power meter might be the only items that are worth getting but those are only a few.

I have no idea what this is... http://www.equipnet.com/auctions/tescom-tc-5062c-6ghz-tem-cell_listid_469397/

But I think I want one.

Maybe it's a device for sharpening knives?  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyramid_power

A TEM cell is used for EMC testing - can be a much cheaper way of creating/detecting a fairly uniform EM field for small items thna a full anechoic shielded room

16% buyer's premium AND $20 (or £20 depending which page you look at) handling fee per item - what a bunch of piss-takers.

I doubt any of the useful high-end kit will go cheap, but I'd love to dive the dumpster

Yes, I expect the MXG will be at least £1k

You don't have my sympathy, with the kind well-stocked dumpster you have sitting on your doorstep I mean  :-//

Know the feeling ... but I think I'd get into more trouble than I do already if it wasn't so.

How does shipping work on those kind of auctions? Do you need to sort that out yourself or can you ask them to handle it for you?

I think you have to collect it yourself. That means a trip to Bridgend!

Just had an email from them, my registration has been approved.

Anyone willing to let me join their auction? I can't since I don't have a company registered.

I'm registered with a company name of "private purchaser".

BTW in the UK you can legally call yourself any name you want, provided that you aren't doing it for fradulent purposes.
There are lies, damned lies, statistics - and ADC/DAC specs.
