RE: More scopes


The mix of transistors and tubes (hybrid) is a good one for the scope as an 
instrument, but weakens the front end a bit compared to the older 500 series 
scopes which were all tubes.   This scope is still more survivable than a 
modern instrument in a Tesla lab.  Just use good sense in its application. 
 A scope for Tesla coil use need not have even a 5MHZ bandwidth!  So some 
really old scopes are just fine.  Those 100+ MHZ Bandwidth scopes will mean 
nothing except extra cash outlay.  I would use your 556 wisely for all but 
the most powerful Tesla system work.
