Re: 7B71 time base jittering at 50ns/div, but not other speeds.

I've been following this thread with some interest because I have a 7B71 myself.  Planning to try it in 7904 when I get a chance.  With 7A26 and new-to-me 7A11's.  Maybe this weekend.  I will post my results. Jim Ford Sent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone

It may be an interesting experiment.It is possible that some imperfect/varying contact causes the effective trigger voltage to vary by a few 100 microvolts, which would cause the behaviour that you see. If you'd see the same effect with a steeper slope with a larger amplitude at the same time base speeds, *that* would mean something and would point specifically to a problem in the time base.Raymond
