Re: Tek 465B blurred channel 1 trace

 

A muti-meter reads in RMS volts, which will always be lower than a scope measurement, which is Peak-Peak.
However, if you rotate the Vert Variable knob fully CCW, it will give a close approximation to RMS.On most scopes, the Variable range is "at least 2.5:1".
This is close to 2.7 to 1, which is the conversion factor from P-P to RMS (sine)
