Tektroniix 492A /AP 3rd Converter Wanted

No replies for calibrator module. Perhaps because the proper nomenclature is 3rd Conveter module (119-2008-00). Hopefully someone has one to sell. Mine has a custom IC chip that is faulty in the calibrator circuit.

How many of these are needed? 5 or 6. I have a MakerGear M2 and could make a few. They'd be black PETG which is all I print with that machine.  Cost would be minimal as long as it doesn't get to be very many.  This is a busy machine already.

Eric,
OK! I'll leave Defender alone. I have tape backups which are offline. I also use a hardware router/firewall and Yes, I changed the logon credentials. I also do NOT use wireless. Everything is hardwired with CAT 5E running at 1Gb. If I don't know who sent an attachment I don't open it. It gets deleted. My email client is Thunderbird. No Outlost for me. I also use Firefox. No Explorer.
GOD Bless and Thanks,

Hello all,
I receive emails supposedly from Walmart, Walgreans, Associated, Credit One, and others stating that I have won this or that just click on this link to get your prize. The link of course will be a Trojan Horse. Or ones from Charter, your electric company, your bank stating that suspicious activity has been noted and that your account is suspended until you click on this link and login. Of course the link is to steal your login information giving them access to your account or accounts. They will also state that they are from Ebay or Paypal. You can forward the emails to the proper authorities but there are so many of them and the authorities can only do anything if they are based in the US.

FS: UHF and N connector dust covers

Brad Thompson
 

Hello--

I'm offering FS one lot of 75 NOS 5/8-inch diameter push-on flexible plastic dust covers
that fit female UHF (SO-239) and female N connectors. The covers are
marked "A.P.C. A-5/8 Erie, PA" and measure 7/8 inch high.

Dust aside, these caps will prevent coaxial  mites from infiltrating your
equipment's connectors<g>.

I'm asking $8.50 (which includes USPS postage) for the lot of 75 caps--
if there's no interest, I'll entertain
offers for smaller quantities.

Questions welcomed, PayPal honored.

Thanks, and 73--

Re: 465 stopped working

Newton,

I assume you may have replaced the fuse and it blew again? I have had these fuses blow from old age. My 465 blew one just a while back during calibration procedures. I replaced it and it has been fine ever since. Sometimes fuses just give up from age.

Hey Dennis,

How can we be sure this message is from you and not from some hyper
intelligent AI bent on hijacking the TekScopes list (or worse yet, your

Just joking around :-) Hope you get things sorted out and that the hackers
didn't get to anything critical for you.

tek 222 operator's manual

Hi,

I'm looking for the 222 operator's manual. Would any of you have it?

465 stopped working

Newton
 

Hi,

I recently acquired a 465 scope which worked beautifully for my amp building projects. I stored it on it's end (if that has any significance) for a few days whilst I built a new shelf for it. I placed it on the shelf turned on, I'm sure I heard a slight noise and the beam disappeared. Investigating I found fuse 1437 (2A) had blown.
What are the first things to check and how?

I am not used to working on oscilloscopes but have the schematic which I can read so any pointers to get this lovely machine back to life would be appreciated.

A too-small printer is only an irritation, not a showstopper.

Exactly. I use the CURA slicer and it offers this option. If you have a 3D printer, even a smaller one, there are ways to overcome the "too small" Print bed. It all depends on how cheap and how redily you can find one on E-Pay. Since I can print these quickly and for pennies, it does not make sense for me to spend what most sellers are asking for these original TEKTRONIX Parts, when and if they come up for sale.

In my case, I've got the 3D printers, so why not use them? I certainly understand that everyone may not be in that position.
