Having worked for HP/Agilent, you'd think I'd be pushing one of them...or a Tek
version. If you can find a nice one...great! But I gotta tell 'ya....the cheap
Chinese ones are now lookin pretty darn good. LCD displays, and ability to save
an image as a .jpg on a thumb drive! If I was suddenly scope- less, (and
every ham needs a scope)....I'd be looking at one!
