Michael Dunn started TekScopes 20 years ago on August 31, 2000. There wasjust one post that day from Walter Shawlee who joined that same day and hehas been an active member ever since.To Walter: Thank you for 20 years of contributions to TekScopes and for allthe parts and instruments you have on your web site!* Three days later Stan Griffiths W7NI (RIP) joined.* Three more members, including Tom Gootee, joined in October, 2000.* By the end of 2000 there were 13 members.* A year later it was clearly important: there were 68 members and >150posts each month. John Miles and Morris Odell joined TekScopes in that firstyear. To John and Morris: Thank you for your regular contributions over the 19years you have been members!* I was a late comer. When I joined in mid-November 2002 there were already250 members. I was looking for something like this for a long time and Ijumped right in with my first post that same day. Apparently I have beenbusy ever since I joined - I just noticed this will be my 5,000th post sinceI joined.Today we have over 8,000 members worldwide and there are 500 to 1500 postsper month.Thank you, Michael Dunn, for realizing the need for a Tektronix supportgroup, for all you did to keep it going the first 17 years, and for beingthere for me when I need occasional help and/or guidance as I continue tomoderate it.
