So are the scopes they give away typically fully optioned up or just the base models?

I'm not sure.  But it doesn't matter to me. I am grateful for whatever it has. 
On video of the last day of WAVE 2019, Daniel mentioned that he thinks that it has all options turned on.  On the video starting at 10:15.  But that is no guarantee, just his guess I suppose.

Also, after I sent in the release forms they required, I received a confirmation email back.  But it was an automatic reply and  said the person was on vacation and out of the office until 6/18.  That is a really nice long vacation but is probably a typo of some sort I guess. 

I just hope that the email and form was received properly.

I believe it said it was fully optioned just like the BV-L's. The BenchVue licenses are fully optioned.

Thanks! I do have an EE degree, but have really enjoyed trying out the marketing thing! I always hated marketing stuff (like a good engineer should  :-DD), but later found out I just hated bad marketing!
Also, my time spent on this forum is ad hoc and not an official mandate from on-high. What can I say, you all make me feel at home :).

Delivery will probably take a while. We bribe work with our factory and use some special processes that are outside of our normal fulfillment activities. We also try to make sure we aren't messing up any orders/stocking by sending out prizes.

So are the scopes they give away typically fully optioned up or just the base models?

I'm like 98% sure the prize scopes come with options. If yours doesn't let me or Boon know and we'll make sure to get them to you.


Also, after I sent in the release forms they required, I received a confirmation email back.  But it was an automatic reply and  said the person was on vacation and out of the office until 6/18.  That is a really nice long vacation but is probably a typo of some sort I guess. 

Typo! Boon also picked up some malware from one of the forms from someone, so he's been in IT jail this week. If you sent it he got it.


Somehow I got lucky for the first time in forever and won a scope on the 11th.  I've been studying the manual ever since I found out and I'm hoping to make a thread about it when it comes in.    The email said it will take a while, though.  It gives me time to get to know it on paper first.

Huge thanks to Dave and all the Keysight team!!
That's because Daniel is delivering them personally on his bicycle.
:-DD

Man, he must be good!  It's a LOOONG way from Colorado Springs  to New Jersey!!!

I actually make air deliveries on my bike, and I've never been accused of being a slow biker :) ( https://imgur.com/a/MByMZYy )

Possible sighting of the deliveries of all that Keysight alien technology....Maybe we'll have to rename it the EETblog.

South Asia Pacific region Wave contest winners are posted at the end of the list here now https://connectlp.keysight.com/Wave_2019_Winners?cmpid=postWave2019list but it doesn't say what prize each person won. Any chance this can be updated?

Shipping info received today.  Shipped on the 7th, now in Japan.  Arriving Monday.   That is really fast from Malaysia to New Jersey.

Mine shipped on the 7th as well, arrived today! Funnily enough I received the tracking number today at work and when I actually got around to checking it, it had already been delivered!

Yeah, no kidding!

So anyways -- got the scope, it had v02.00 firmware so I updated it to v02.01, and added the DVM license (free with registration here). Came with all of the licenses except serial decoding :/ I asked Daniel if I could get a license for it, we will see what he says. I suppose if I have to pay $155 for the I2C, SPI, RS232 decodes, it isn't too bad, but I wish they didn't break CAN/LIN into a whole separate upgrade for another $155. Played around with the scope for a bit tonight but I won't be able to access the rest of my bench for a few weeks to really utilize it. So totally stoked that I actually won something this nice!

I have Fedex Delivery Manager installed, so I can see and track any packages coming to my address, but I had a really good laugh when the Email showed a tracking number  of  1.02947E+11.  True engineer style .  I love it!!

 Mine came in today.  It got held up in customs for an extra day.  This scope is awesome!!  I'll be spending all evening learning on this.   I still can't wrap my head around winning.

Just picked up mine. That dark color scheme sure is sexy. Seems like serial decoding is missing thou  :-//

It came with licences, SGM; MASK, BW20, BW10, EDK, WAVEGEN, RML.

UI seems nice. Shouldn't take too long to learn it as we have some 3000-series and 9000-series MSOs at work.

I don't know if they will be including the serial licenses.  I figure they will be sending the BenchVue licenses along later.

Remote command Logging

I read on a post somewhere that RML was never  implemented

"RML is something that was never finished. It stand for Remote Logging.  It just shoves SCPI commends received over the bus to the screen or a file.  It is not really available"

Hi Everyone,

If you won a scope and didn't get serial decodes, shoot me an e-mail and I'll get you taken care of.

it's: daniel [dot] bogdanoff [at] keysight.com

I was under the impression the config we ordered had the options pre-installed, but they apparently did not. Sorry about that!

For BenchVue, I'm working on something that'll get that squared away as well. Thanks for everyone's patience!

Cool!  Thanks, Daniel.  I'm still up learning with the scope burning the midnight oil.  I am really having fun with this.

I want to say again (and again, and again...) Thanks to you and Keysight!

Let me fix that for you, Daniel: "If you didn't win a scope, shoot me an email and I'll get you taken care of." :-DD
