Carl (M0ICR ex 2E0TEC) saved the day with my Tek 465 -- he sent the replacement HV multiplier that put the 'scope back in action. (Ace Tek repairman Tad WA1FQO made the repair. Tad sells Tek scopes on E-bay -- check out his products: Search for fqo63 on ebay.)
Carl notes a number of similarities between our workbenches and recent projects. All he needs now is a Drake 2-B!
Alan Wolke said he'd be interested in my reactions to having both a digi scope and an analog scope on the bench. I can already see areas where one might be a bit better than the other. The Tek is better at watching a fast moving audio or SSB waveform. But the Rigol doea all kinds of math tricks. Check out the FFT function shown on Carl's page: http://iqrp.net/
Bill,I am very pleased that you finally got it working with the help of brothers from the fraternity. Having listened to your latest Podcast I think that must be your alter ego! I have A Tek 465, Rigol 100MHz DS1102E and have built 2 Bitx, one for 20m and the other for right bands- using a DDS VFO (3 if you include the 80m version by Steve Drury G6ALU - look up MKARS80) ...I also have 2 copies of SSD!
