What frequencies will the general oscilloscopes operate on? Will they cover all the ham bands?  Thank you  KC6BIU

Tektronix has published a 60-page free guide to choosing and using oscilloscopes. You may find it helpful.

You can get an older Tek2235 or 2335 for under $200 these days. They can run up to 150mhz. I've used them on 2mtrs with good useful traces.
There are tons of things you can test with a O-scope.
I've recently updated my scopes to the new digital FFT scope. I find them very good, and have lots of new capabilities that my old scope just could not do. Allot smaller in size too.

I was able to find a working, Tektronix 2445A, 150 MHz BW, four channel oscilloscope at a local hamfest for $300.00.  Money well spent!

Alan Wolke's YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/w2aew is a great resource on oscilloscopes and electronics in general.

I second DRBEN's recomendation of the Tektronix guide.
