Re: New member intro, and a request....
Plan to finally get around to doing my Tech and Gen HAM exams.
Always gazed at adverts for Tek scopes etc. in Radio Electronics mags from the late 70s & 80s. Could never buy one until some second hand 2465 & 2465A units a few years ago. Plus I also have a couple TM503s and about 9 plugins targeting calibration of those scopes.
Sadly, I don't use those fine analog scopes atm, as my lab space is so congested I need the compact (Rigol 300Mhz) digital units. My biggest Bandwidth scope is a 3Ghz Tek TDS694C in good cal.
Haven't done up new project write ups lately either as I had major surgery near Christmas last year with a 2 week to brain death encephalitis scenario driven by a 'silent' stage 2 cancer tumour.
Well, I'm still here to be an active part of the group. BTW, the neurologist found my cognitive brain healing (measured & documented by EEGs and MRis) has exceeded normal expectations....probably due to the technical work we all do, so I have documented evidence that our work/hobbies keep brain synapses and axions strong.
