I agree 100% with you. I think I've already said as much on this forum somewhere, a truly awesome piece of hacking by a true enthusiast who would of gotten the very best out of the kit. Hope he is acknowledged in round 2.  


Edit** (Thinks)....Sh*t. May of blown my chances of a free scope there....Damn!**

It did occur to me while watching that a DSO may have been fairly useless for this application. They often lack a Z input and have a fairly low update rate. At least the TDS2k,  not sure about MSO.

The thing is with the SEM bloke,even if it's used with something very high tech,he is just using the the Oscilloscope as a picture monitor.

I remember doing this with a 545B when I was on evening shift at a manned TV transmitter site when things got boring,
----It's not rocket science!

Most of the other videos were just showing normal functions of the Oscilloscope which people could read in the Operator's Handbook.

Dave focussed on something a bit different from the run of the mill stuff.
