Re: Type G plugin versions

Dave Wise

I don't know the G serial number at which Tek switched from UHF to BNC*, but the 1962 catalog shows UHF while 1963 is BNC**. I think I have a newer manual at home, I'll try to remember to look.

There was a mod kit for converting instruments in the field. I have at least one modded scope and plugin. Yours too, most likely, as Tek would not have sold instruments with such an obvious bodge.

* For what it's worth, the 535A mainframe switched at 31260.
** Some old models were not updated.

Anyone know when this transition took place?
My G also has BNC connectors. If it's anything like the other 500 series equipment, I think the transition was in the mid-to-late 1960s. My 535A has factory-fitted BNCs as well.
