Like the other guy said, any old scope will work. I have found
out, though (and who said sense was common? ;-)) that you can't
use a 5Mc scope, to monitor your 40m carrier. That was a -long-
time ago, I tried that stunt. Couldn't figure out why things
were 'slanted' on 40m, when it looked/worked so sweetly on 75m.
20Mc scopes are fairly common at hamfests.
There's times you can find good deals. Other times you will find
people that want an arm, a leg and a contract for you to give up
your first born child, and share raising rights on the 2nd.
Kinda like those people that make a mint off of selling Collins
stuff. Just because it says "Collins" on it, some people seem to
start foaming at the mouth. Very similar to Pavlov's Dogs.
Personally, I really don't -care- what it is, or do I much care
for how it looks, as long as it works.
Ok. I need more coffee :-)
