Re: Searching for a Tek 7000 series scope


Hi Sean,
OK, I looked at the pictures. The third picture really caught my attention!!! My first reaction was "This is not possible". The bandwidth must be so far down at 2GHz that you would barely get it to display that at one or two divisions of vertical no matter what you did.

What I don't understand is what you had to do to get that 2GHz sinewave on the screen of a 7904A with a just a 7A19. Also how hard was it to get the 7B15 to trigger at that frequency? One last question: What was your signal source?

My complements to you for whatever you did to get your new scope to do that. Everybody should sit up and take notice of what a 7901A can do. It would be even faster with a 7A29 in it. You are certainly capable of putting this scope to very good use.

I wanted to thank everyone for their replies, direct emails, and
advice. After consideration of many kind offers, I ended up purchasing
a 7904A + plugins from John Griessen. It arrived yesterday! Absolutely
thrilled with it.

I think the next thing I need to find is a scope mobile cart for it to
free up bench space. :o)
