As luck would have it — I just plugged in my 7L12 and got the dreaded click of death...pulled the unit and it let the smoke out somewhere inside. Ugh!!

I bet! Not quite as much fun as my HP 8566, but I have to hope the 8566 doesn't crap out someday. Might be nice to have a 7L12 or 7L18 as a backup.Still, I hesitate to use a Tek spec an 25 years after being forced to use one (a real PITA). HPAK spec ans rule, IMO. If it weren't for the space and weight I would have several 8566's.JimSent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone

I think you want a 7S12, not a 7L12. 7S12 is the TDR/sampler. The 7L12, while a desirable spectrum analyzer plug-in in its own right, won't get you TDR functionality.

Idon't really want to risk that -- I'm going to presume it was tested, andis bad...Any help in finding a setup is appreciated!Thanks,Kyle> >
