453


Arnoud van der Wel <A.P.vanderWel@...>
 

About the 453....

'Great' is said with a wink to size and weight... The 453 is not a 'great'
scope. :)

Secondly, I specifically did not want to include transistorized Tek scopes
in the museum because the interest in those is even larger than the interest
in the tube scopes. Doing a question-and-answer session with all the
thousands of happy users of 5000, 7000, 453, 454, 465, 475, 485 users around
the world is not what I set out to do...

But of course.... If I had a 453, it would not be for sale... :)

Regards,

Arnoud.

Hi again all... :)

FOUND IT!!!

Thanks for that. Looks like it was a nameserver problem
after all... Great
pages, but I take issue with your comment that the 453
"doesn't belong in the
list of the great tek scopes..." The 453 was my scope of
choice as soon as I
could get my hands on it! And the first thing I did was
throw away the mesh
filter and fit a blue one. Lovely! :)

In my mind, the 453 is the "classic portable" oscilloscope.

Cheers,
:)

And in my mind the 485 would have to be a classic also... Now if there's any
thing I'd like *more* than a 453, it would be a 485. All the style of the 453,
and 350MHz! Yes!

But of course.... If I had a 453, it would not be for sale... :)
I second that. But I don't think I've ever seen one for sale... I wanted to
buy the one I was working with, and Peter wouldn't sell it to me... >sigh<.

Cheers,

...And having just said that, I just found one at:
http://robby.caltech.edu/~long/personal/audio.html
--- $200.

No, I'm not going for it, with the echange rate what it is.

If you really want a 453, you can find them for sale of eBay and in various
classified ads for used test equipment. Not everything on eBay sells for
outrageous prices . . .

I guess you're right. But I've just shelled out $600 for an "as new" 7603
(actually it was cheap!) (and it was "as new" until the post office broke
it...) and don't have any more "big" money left right now.

But later on, I will be looking out for a 453. :)

What I *would* like right now are some calibration standards...

Cheers,
:)
