Hi Folks - all PMs have been replied to. 

And this is very much a manual process - the request actually ends up going to a group in Munich to handle, so please be patient.  I know they are pretty overwhelmed and sometimes the first requests take a little figuring out before they can get it all going smoothly.

I think we're just excited to try out the feature we just found out about. Reasonable waits feel like decades!  :scared:

Thats a so called eevblog-DDOS... 

Well, R&S should know that this would happen when there is a thread called "new killerscope in town...." and you do some good support to the crowd... :-+

I too had the back and forth about the lack of a PK1 bundle, but have been told that eligibility will be confirmed on Monday (and that lookup of my device ID has indicated all options included in PK1), so I hope to have a positive answer and some new features shortly :)

I actually have another device for FRA measurements (with more functionality than the K36 option), but it would be nice to be able to check things quickly from my main scope.

Wireless mice now work since the firmware update.

Both the Logitech M325 and Logitech M705 work.

Neither worked before.

Thanks very much R&S

I just received a email  with the activation code for RTB-K36 option from Rodhe&Schwarz!
Thank you so much Rich, for you assistance!

Also received mine with no back and forth. I did add numbers from the box though so maybe that made it easier or they've got it all figured out now.

When did you request the key? (I assume it is a COM4 bundle unit?) Still no word about mine (Monday being almost over), but as Rich said they are busy and I'm not in a rush so I'll give it a few days before chasing.

I sent the request 2pm on thursday(california time). Yes, a COM4 unit. From the box I included R&S order number, purchase number and consignee po number just to be safe.

Took me a minute to realize I had to go into gen settings to set offset(testing single rail amp and filter and was clipping under 0 giving bad gain readings) but it seems fine. Not sure if it's an issue but you only seem to get three amplitude points for the gen output but you can set frequency and amplitude for them. Runs well, you can see the input/outputs and the plot, it also has a record for all recorded measurement points.

Got my key today  :-+

Found this on Youtube

Twisted some L-C Stuff together  ...  it works.   Thanks R&S.

I can set the profil with up to 16 points with frequency and amplitude level each.

I must have missed where you can add points then.

It is next to start and stop frequency

I'm wondering.. is there any math possible on the bode plot traces? It would be nice to calculate the real and imaginary impedances (and from there the RLC values of the device under test). The latter would turn the feature into an LF network analyser.
There are small lies, big lies and then there is what is on the screen of your oscilloscope.

Ah, I'll have to look there too. I did find it in the main bode plot menu, I just overlooked it my first time through.

Bode Plot is explained starting on page 144 of the user's manual (revision 7). Of course manuals are overrated  :) :)

Argh, I had the "except messages only from admins" switched on :palm:
Can you please respond again?

Got my code yesterday, a quick play suggests the feature does what it should for the standard gain/phase stuff and is not too slow at it either. Even used it in anger checking the frequency response of a CT I wound recently.

It's still limited compared to a real low-freq FRA/network-analyser (i.e. no calibration, L/C/Z plots etc), but that's a limitation shared by all the other big-name scope based "bode-plot" tools, and I have other tools for when I need to do that. Definitely happy with the additional feature  :-+
