I've avoided owning a scope, but the recent discussion about troubleshooting
low power from an Omni D has me rethinking. Most of the gear I own now old,
have managed to diagnose problems without owning a scope. In one case, the
problem with an old hollow-state receiver was found by poking around with a
wooden dowel to expose a poor solder joint. My main concern is spending more
money on a scope than my shack is worth, or alternately spending more time
fixing a used scope than is warranted.
Would be curious about thoghts from others who repair their own gear about what
minimum-required scope would be.
