If you go to any hamfests, look out for working scopes.
There are good deals if you just keep an eye out.
I got a dual trace solidstate 60 mhz combination, X-Y and Z input functions, 120/12 volt dc small one with two new probes for $120.
All functions work, conditon as almost new.
Just as a fyi, I did a test using a Palamar RF noise bridge generator runing into a 50 ohm load just to see if the scope would respond.
Perfect, it showed a large amplitude noise output from the bridge and nulled out perfectly at 50 ohms and near zero reactance on the bridge dial calibration, to a 'flat line', with the scope's full vertical channel sensitivity settings.
I really would not consider a unit in the EICO or
class unless you get it for next to nothing.
Not saying they have no use having had a few, but you will end up wanting one that is much better in the Lab class of unit, later on.
