They're three different livestreams on three different dates. ;)

Something seems to went wrong. Failure from my side? Somehow I am multiple registered?    :-//

What is wrong with getting invited one time each to three different events?
Did you only want to be invited to one event?
I don't get it!
There are 3 kinds of people in this world, those who can count and those who can not.

A couple things:

1.
Wow so great. Thanks for posting it here!  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Too bad thought that it is (again) a suscribe and win thing.
I liked the concept you used for "power up my bench" much more. Since you have to put some effort in it limits the number of people to enter and would allow you to select people who actually need / use / apprechiate your devices instead of selling them off as quickly as possible...

We will be doing the "Test to Impress" contest again, so there WILL be a merit-based aspect to this event. We like the idea of a sweepstakes but also want to look out for people that have a lot of potential merit as well. If I recall correctly, the grand prize is a bundle of their choice, and a few runner up prizes are 1000 X-Series. So, both high end and lower end gear as prizes this time around.

Running events like this Australia a nightmare, but they are included in the South Asia Pacific event. My understanding is that contests are easier than sweepstakes.

Without going into specifics about certain countries, issues can include:
Total prize value too big/small
Individual prize value too big/small
Country/state requires a large cash payment or bond relative to prize size
Sweepstakes/contest must originate from local country
Sweepstakes (random draw) vs. Contests (merit-based) discrepancies

Thank you for your explanation.
It didn't enter my mind that this might be for taxation and regulatory reasons. Running this contest internationally must be a nightmare!

It's almost March 1'st.
- and who wouldn't want the chance to win some cool Keysight equipment?

Count me in. Thanks DanielBogdanoff, and also to the rest of the Keysight family.

I have read the terms and conditions, and I have a quick question regarding the Wave 2018 - Test to Impress Contest Official Rules:
Submission must be a valid link to a video hosted on YouTube, youku, or vimeo.

I am not on facebook, so I might have missed the entry posting there.
(Visiting the social media via the social media buttons worked, but I was quickly greeted with pop-up's telling me to join - no thanks! I'm on YouTube, and this great forum  :-+)

Back to my question, where to post the link to the video?
I could do it here, so here it is:
https://youtu.be/RlZK-r6YsF0

I will soon be making my first topic in the Open Sourced Hardware, and I hope the thread will see some replies  :popcorn:

Thanks!
Egon

@TheDane,

There will be a submission form for the Test to Impress contest from the Wave web page starting 1-Mar.

Thanks!

@Anks, you should have received a confirmation e-mail (assuming you checked the box?). You can also just try again, if it went through the registration properly first time it won't let you do it a gain.

I registered a week ago.

Is that entry for every draw?
Is the multiple choice "Daily Challenge" question the entry for each day?
or
Does one fill in the registration form again for daily entry?

I don't want to risk registering twice and invalidating my entry if the registration form is not for the daily entry.

Congratulation to the first winner - Drew. I wonder how many eevblog member winners we will get this year. Lots, I hope.

This isn't quite clear to me either.

Everyone got one entry opportunity prior to commencement of Wave. That entry is valid for the duration of the event.

Each day during Wave, everyone gets one entry opportunity by filling in and submitting the form. You do that once a day. All of these entries are in the pot for all subsequent random draws during the event. Thus, you don't lose out if you don't enter every day, however your odds decrease relative to those who do enter everyday.
I TEA.

First things first: Congratulations to Drew!  :clap: :clap: :clap:  Have much fun with your "new toys". :-+ :-DMM

And now to something completly different:
[...] you should have received a confirmation e-mail (assuming you checked the box?). You can also just try again, if it went through the registration properly first time it won't let you do it a gain.
Yes, I have checked the box. No, I havn´t received a confirmation mail. And yes, I´ve looked at the spam and deleted folder also. The site seems to work properly. At least the next try is only possible tomorrow.

What now??? I am in the sweepstake, even without a confirmation mail? Or am I been fooled by the website?
Someone else without confirmation?        :-//

Visit wave.keysight.com again. When I entered, I checked the confirmation email box and received no confirmation. However, going to the entry page, even on a different device, indicated that I had entered. :-//

We should ask Drew, if he has gotten a confirmation mail...

Hi Daniel. I got a trivial question. One entry per day means registering the same email or different email for each day is allowed?

Don't use a lot of different email addresses, it may look like you're trying to stuff extra entries. One entry per day from the same address is sufficient.

I love these giveaways its so cool because for some of us these scopes are so far out of our price range.  I think I have two entries, my other entry is my 40th post, so I am actually at 9 shy after this post... oh well  :-\    Keep it coming Dave!

It is kinda suprising that they decided to have less but higher-budget rewards tbh, you'd think they'd want to give "the keysight experience" to as many people as possible. After all, more people = more chance to get to someone praising your gear in future.

But damn, those bundles will make someone a very happy camper

with MSOX3054T, could you see 868MHz signal, to find it's more precise carrier freq.?

Ok, I'm NOT participating this time :(

I'm sure you guys know that there are laws/rules against unreasonable collection of personal information (EU and most other countries).
How about making most of those fields non-mandatory?

I'm not a lawyer, but I cannot grant/"assign" you all Intellectual Property rights including copyrights in an unconditional manner to my address or phone number - that's not something that I own or that is in my sole posession.

Want to do something really good? ... double up on Dave's giveway or his personal pick (he accidently mislabled the Keysight DSOX1102G scope as 4CH model... so why not make it a 4CH?) :-/O

While it IS nice that they gave away so much stuff last year I'm sure it was a ridiculous amount of work for Daniel, Josh etc. to have to deal with considering the laws in all the different countries and just the huge number of winners.

It is kinda suprising that they decided to have less but higher-budget rewards tbh, you'd think they'd want to give "the keysight experience" to as many people as possible. After all, more people = more chance to get to someone praising your gear in future.
