True Tektronix Quality is now affordable Time Owned: more than 12 months.
The 465B was the workhorse in labs of the 80s and 90s. Many of us used them daily, learned electronics with them and valued them but never could afford one for the Hamshack. Digital troubleshooting can be done well and accessories are available to clamp on ICs. It's not digital or storage but 100MHz is a very respectable scope. I can look at RF up to 2 Meters easily.
My winning bid on e-bay was $111 and it was brand new and never unpacked. Complete with manuals but no probes. Some 465B 'scopes have the DM44 Digital multimeter on top. A real bonus !
