Hello Dave,

I have an USB PC oscilloscope, witch I successfully used also for constructing and measuring my SSTC design. It works really good, also e.g. triggering for single events in the ns range.

It is a 60MHz two channel digital storage scope,

look at this link:


It costs 400 Euro, what should be something about 500 US$
