Re: LCDs and Audio items added to the Sphere Stuff Season Page.

 

But YOU ARE FAMOUS WALTER!!! You're famous on TekScopes and you're famous to me. I'm just not sure you are WORLD FAMOUS! At least not yet.

After my friend Aris came with me to see you place I can definitely tell you that you are absolutely famous to Aris. That is a real complement because he is very stingy with who he considers famous.

I'm famous too, at least I think I am famous to our five golden retrievers. I hope I am anyway.

If only I was famous to Marian. That might make her treat me better.
Here reply is always the same: "That's not going to happen as long as you're alive".

Sorry to all that were offended by the "famous" line in the stuff season animation. the scrolling display was done by my son while he was experimenting with some effects for his photo studio site. I asked him to make one for me, but clearly I misjudged the significance of that line. I guess to him at least, the event is famous, but I see it has had unintended consequences, so I just took it down. I just thought it was funny, clearly opinions differ..

you can now see the page without the hideously offending line here:

Why you MUST USE the PayPal "FRIENDS and FAMILY" option for Peter's book

 

If you are using PAYPAL to pay for Peter Keller's book and you
DID NOT chose to send you payment to "FRIENDS AND FAMILY" PayPal
assumes (my guess) that you are paying for something you ordered
from a business. We do not receive your payment - They keep it.
This is the message PayPal sends us:
---------|---------|---------|---------|---------|---------|----
We've placed this money on hold because we've noticed that
you're a new PayPal seller and will need time to build a
positive selling history. The money has been added to your
ON-HOLD balance. It'll be available once we can confirm that
your customer has received the goods or services.
---------|---------|---------|---------|---------|---------|----
We are NOT NEW to PayPal and we are NOT A SELLER. We have tried
numerous times to have them change this with no success.

I hope you are as angry as we are that PayPal earns interest
on your money while they are preventing us from getting it.

THIS IS WHY YOU MUST SAY YOUR PAYMENT IS TO "FRIENDS AND FAMILY"

IF YOU DID NOT USE "FRIENDS AND FAMILY" you have these options:
(1) Cancel the transaction and send another payment. This time
use FRIENDS AND FAMILY.
(2) Notify PayPal that you received the book IMMEDIATELY.
(3) Buy the book on Amazon for $70 to $150.
(4) Pay $650 to buy the book on eBay right now.
(5) If you do not consider me a "FRIEND" that you can trust with
your payment think about this: I spent the past four years
of my life as the moderator of TekScopes because I care
about preserving the part of Tektronix's legacy when the
instruments they created were the gold standard of the
Electronics Industry. I arranged for our members to acquire
Peter's book because I know how important it is. I do not
get anything for doing this. The opposite is true: It has
taken substantial effort and time to make this possible.

On Dec 2, the funds I received, less the postage and supplies I
ordered, will be given to Peter along with a list of the people
whose money has CLEARED our PayPal account. He will personally
autograph a book to each of those people and I will mail them.

Then I will be able to return to what I love doing (before I
came up with this bright idea): Playing with all my Tek toys.

Whatever option you choose be aware that we will probably take
all of the remaining copies of Peter's book. There will be no
more if we do that.

I used my desktop. While I have a PayPal account, I do not have their
credit card or use their banking application and I don’t keep a balance in
the account.

I have noticed before that if I send money for a charitable donation,
usually to a “.org” PayPal sometimes automatically sends without a fee and
they also seem not to charge me a fee in these cases.

Usually, I do get the options to choose “gift”, “family & friends”, or
“products and services”, but I did not this time. Still, I got the
confirmation that the total amount was sent with no fee charged to me or
the recipient.

Re: DOMESTIC {AYMENT INSTRUCTIONS for Peter Keller's CRT Book

 

Hi Bruce,
Since you did not use "Friends and Family" PayPal will not release the money
to us since they assume (I'm guessing) you paid for "Goods and/or Services".
As a result they hold the money until you receive whatever they think you
bought from me.
Peter is only giving me as many books as I can pay him for. Since I don't
have your money (PayPal has it) you are stuck.
For suggestions about what you and others can do please read the first item
in the email I sent to TekScopes a few minutes ago. The subject of the email
is

I can see I also need to send a version of this to anyone domestically who
also did not use "Friends and Family".

Tek 475 Any preemptive recommendations

Charles Plunk
 

Hi All,

My Tek 475 I bought locally about a week ago seems to work fine after cleaning all the controls. I have cleaned the front panel and it looks really nice. Before I put the cover on and put it in its rightful place on the bench, does anyone have any recommendations for anything to do to it that might save me grief later. Such as a common capacitor failure that could wipe out expensive or unobtainable components? Or anything else?

Appreciate any input.

Thanks,

Re: INTERNATIONAL PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS for Peter Keller's CRT Book

Siggi
 

PayPal really doesn't make it easy to go through this, presumably because
they don't like exposing their fees to end users.
For me the choices were "Sending to a friend", vs "Paying for an item or
service.", and with the former choice the fees landed on me. The PayPal fee
is pretty extortionate. It works out to about 7% of the total amount for
this transaction, so it's important for the sender to eat the fee - we
don't want it landing on Denis.

Even with the fees, this is still a great deal for a great book that's
otherwise unavailable. Many thanks to Denis for organizing this.

These are the payment instructions for all of the INTERNATIONAL
Orders for Peter Keller's book that I have received as of
NOV 22, 2020 20:00 (UTC -08:00) I have your order if your
country and initials are on the list at the end of this message.
It is not possible to combine orders due to weight restrictions.
Please contact me with new directions for your order if we were
going to combine orders to save on postage.

INTERNATIONAL POSTAGE FEES
Unfortunately there is no way to reduce the cost of postage to
other countries due to a 4lb (1.814kg) flat rate weight limit.
Peter's book is too heavy for two of them to be sent in one
Priority Flat Rate International envelope. The most inexpensive
way to send Peter's book to you is one per envelope. Combining
orders is no longer practical so I need you to tell me how to
change your order now that I know this is not an option.
*** POSTAGE TO ANYWHERE EXCEPT CANADA IS $37.00 for one copy of
Peter's book in a Priority Flat Rate International envelope.
The actual postage varies between $34 and $39 depending on your
country but it will be easiest on me if everyone sends me $37.00
(except Canadians) for postage because it will average $37.00.
*** POSTAGE TO CANADA IS $28.00 (they are our neighbor) for
Peter's book in a Priority Flat Rate International envelope.

---------|---------|---------|---------|---------|---------|----
TOTAL COST AND PAYMENT BY PAYPAL
*** The total amount per book going to CANADA is $63.00 ($30 for
Peter's book, $28 for postage, and $5 for supplies and my time).

*** The total amount per book going ANYWHERE WORLDWIDE (except
the US and Canada) is $72.00 ($30 for Peter's book, $37 for
postage, and $5 for supplies and my time).

PayPal is the only way to pay Peter and me if your book is not
going to a US address. Your PayPal payment should be sent to:
MarianT@YouthEastsideServices.org.
In case Groups.io obscures this address, here it is spelled out:
mariant at youtheastsideservices dot org.

In the PayPal NOTE field include the name you used in your
email to me when you ordered Peter's book so I can match your
payment to your order.

A conversion rate and fee is charged by PayPal for international
currency payments. PayPal charges both of us fees so (1) Be sure
to choose "Friends and Family" or "Gift" to minimize the PayPal
fees; (2) Specify that you will pay the recipient's fee so I
receive all of the money I need to mail your book; and (3) Make
your payment in US dollars. NOTE: There are on-line sites that
calculate the PayPal fees so you know what they should be.

I must receive your PayPal payment by Tuesday DEC 1, 2020.

Re: Tek 520A NTSC vectorscope disassembly

ppppenguin
 

I've worked on the PAL version (521 and 521A) which is mechanically near enough identical. As usual it's a superbly engineered instrument. There was actually an earlier Tek vectorscope, the 526, (NTSC version may have had a different number) which wasn't the most wonderful of instruments but at the time it was all there was. The phase shift arrangments were a row of pushbuttons for coarse adjustment and a hefty multi-turn dial for fine.

The socketed semiconductors were commonplace in other Tek instruments of that era. In my opinion this made reliability worse for no great benefit.

The word "vectorscope" is actually a Tek trademark that fell into common use. The generic term is "vector monitor".

Except for a few legacy composite analogue video applications, vectorscopes are totally obsolete. Some modern video testgear will still give a vector style display even though it has little relevance in the digital age.

INTERNATIONAL PAYMENT DETAILS for PAYPAL Payments EXTREMELY IMPORTANT

 

If you are using PAYPAL to pay for Peter Keller's book I cannot
tell what choices you will be offered. PayPal may use different
terms or language to describe your options. It is EXTREMELY
IMPORTANT that you get these two choices correct.
---------|---------|---------|---------|---------|---------|----
(1) You must NOT say that this is for "GOODS AND SERVICES" (or
however they word this choice). If you do this PayPal WILL NOT
GIVE US THE MONEY UNTIL YOU RECEIVE THE BOOK. If you have
already done this then you must cancel the transaction or notify
PayPal that you received the book. The CORRECT choice is to
indicate that this is a "CASH GIFT" or money for "FRIENDS AND
FAMILY" or for someone you "TRUST". Whatever the wording is
this is the choice to look for. Your fee will be less if you
chose this and PayPal will give the money to us immediately.
---------|---------|---------|---------|---------|---------|----
(2) When sending cash internationally PayPal takes a fee from
you AND A FEE FROM ME. If you tell PayPal to send me $72 I will
get approximately $69. There should be a choice to tell PayPal
that you will pay my fee so I will get the complete amount. If
you can't find this option send me a little more to cover my
fee.

Tek 520A NTSC vectorscope disassembly

Greg Muir
 

I had an occasion to recently part out an old Tek 520A NTSC vectorscope that was one of two lying around in storage given to me by a past client. To say the least I was impressed about the packaging design of this unit given its age.

The unit is obviously a more complex instrument since it was assigned the task of precisely measuring both amplitude and phase components of the analog video signal. All of the several printed circuit boards were highly populated with discrete components.

Mechanically it appeared that the Tek packaging designers were given wide latitude to utilize as many unique approaches to their input as needed. The sheet metal in itself was a significant design effort to get everything to align properly. The printed circuit boards were retained not by normal fattener means but, instead utilizing small plastic catches that secured the edges of the boards. Simply flexing them away from the board allowed it to be released.

All except a couple of instances all of the high number of connections to the boards were made using the small pop-type wire connectors allowing each board to be removed without having to resort to desoldering wires. I can see where this would be rather handy for board repairs or replacement (and probably factory calibration during assembly) but it also could possibly introduce a certain factor of intermittence over time (I did find a couple of connectors that were rather loose when parting the unit out).

A large number of the semiconductors were also socketed on the boards. As to why this approach was made is not certain except from the possible standpoint of serviceability.

Of particular mechanical note was the increased complexity of the front panel and mounting of several of the controls. Without going into detail I will say that some of the designs were not of the normal variety. And included in this was the design of the phase adjustment controls where a mechanical approach was made to achieve adjustment rather than an electronics means. But it must be remembered that this was an early foray for Tek to provide quality test equipment for the broadcast color television industry.

The CRT itself was of the obvious Tek custom design. It utilized a dual graticule arrangement to achieve two different measurement display modes. There was a dual illumination scheme to achieve this approach. For phase measurements one set of lamps illuminated a custom glass faceplate overlay permanently bonded to the CRT that contained legends indicating the proper phase relationships for the I, Q & Y signals. Then when simple video amplitude and timing were to be shown a second set of lamps illuminated the “normal” plastic graticule that mounted in front of the CRT. And to assure accurate calibration of the displays a dual focus coil arrangement surrounded the CRT.

Compared to the typical Tek oscilloscope product I have to say that the engineers really knocked themselves out to develop a dedicated product that served the television industry for many years. If something of this nature were to be designed in the present era it would have been considerably less complex given the availability of ASICs and processing power available.

In all it was a great learning experience to better understand the earlier years of Tek engineering.

Re: DOMESTIC {AYMENT INSTRUCTIONS for Peter Keller's CRT Book

Dennis,

I received a confirmation from PayPal that the amount sent was USD $37.00
and that there was no fee. I’m not sure what happened to “family and
friends” but it seems to have been replaced by this “trusted recipient”
thing.

Bottom line - it worked.

Re: Mystery A4 board in 2465B

Harvey White
 

If you ever work on surveillance TV cameras, you may find it useful.  The older video equipment (VCR, DVD, etc) can also generate these signals.

Face it, some folks would complain if they were hung
with a new rope !!

Never noticed the "offending" part, but I have a macabre
sense of humor. I thought "Breaking Bad" was more of a
comedy.

Sorry to all that were offended by the "famous" line in the stuff season
animation. the scrolling display was done by my son while he was
experimenting with some effects for his photo studio site. I asked him
to make one for me, but clearly I misjudged the significance of that
line. I guess to him at least, the event is famous, but I see it has had
unintended consequences, so I just took it down. I just thought it was
funny, clearly opinions differ..

you can now see the page without the hideously offending line here:
https://www.sphere.bc.ca/test/stuffday.html
loads a lot faster without the animation anyway.

all the best,
