Oscilloscopes are useful tools in the world of electronics, allowing radio amateurs to “see” the signals inside their equipment. Through personal computers and today’s technologies, a variety of analog, digital, or hybrid scopes is available to hams for problem solving and testing new ideas in your workshop.
Oscilloscopes for Radio Amateurs by Paul Danzer, N1II, is filled with practical information you’ll need for using a ’scope. It begins with an overview of the oscilloscope and goes on to discuss characteristics, applications, probes, controls, and input modes. If you’re considering adding a ’scope to your ham shack or workbench, the book includes an explanation of scope specifications and features to help you select the one that’s right for you.
