If you know how to use an oscilloscope, you definitely know what features to
look for.  I'd recommend the local "Trader" papers rather than the 'net,
since used 'scopes are extremely common items sold by lots of non-hams.  All
three of my 'scopes, which include a 500 MHz dual-trace digital storage
scope (Tektronix), were purchased used, locally, from people's garages.  The
Tek cost me $150 and still had lab calibration tags from Northrup, with the
calibration still current....-WB2WIK/6
