RE: What to do with an Oscilloscope

My 350MHz eBay special. It's an old school analog scope.

You can look at wideband crap on your DC power supply.

And compare the wideband crap vs other DC power supplies.

You can look at transient noise on the DC power supply under load. In this case a computer music server.

You can use it with some additional simple circuitry to make a curve tracer, measure capacitor ESR, measure RC time constant, use as a TDR to measure and troubleshoot cables, create funky lissajous patterns, create a digital clock, etc.

And you can fry your scope by probing around where you shouldn't if you don't pay attention to earth referenced ground.... as one inmate in Computer Audio did a few months ago.
