Oscilloscope arrives!

I haven't touched the amp project since getting parts at the Hamvention early last summer. I hope to spend some time on it over the next few months though. Today I finally got my hands on an oscilloscope. Thank you Mike! It is a B&K Precision Model 1461. I am not sure how old it is but I would bet 15-20 years. It appears to be in nice shape. I don't know much about these so I will have to do some reading before I even turn it on. One sour note, B&K Precision doesn't provide support directly for their older equipment. They transferred the rights to the technical documents, to a subsidiary. This company wants $25, plus shipping, for the 35 page owner's manual! I may end up spending the money though.
