    I was told it was a pretty good unit. I like the 4 channel's. Now is the easy part;
    learn how to use it

    And get probes.

    I am very excited to have this thing, more so to learn how to use it. I've never used one of these, I am only familiar with some of the basic functions. I don't know what I actually have here, in terms of capability. I still need to figure out what I want to do about the probes. Do I only need one probe per channel?

    You use one probe per channel. You'll probably use the horizontal channel's internal oscillator, then you'll hook up the vertical probe (two leads, common and input) to the signal source after making DAMN SURE that your input range is correct.

    That thing should serve you well PC2. It's definately a heavy sucker, but that's how the older scopes were (my ex-boss's one was around 60lbs I think). One thing those older ones were known for was reliability.

    One probe per channel, make sure the probe and the scope is suitable for what you are measuring, or you risk having problems.

    Good scope - looks like early 80s. Be careful with the small twist knobs - it was easy to break the detents on the on-off pots even when they were new.

    In my electronics class, there were only two of us. The teacher bought us these little kit robot things (with a little vibrating motor that made them move). They responded to infrared light from remotes and stuff. We attached wires and other crap to them and made them battle each other. We did this for a whole semester. Yeah, I didn't learn anything useful in my electronics class.

    This is the first time I've seen Greek typed out on bikeforums. I have no idea where I am or what's going on.

    Is it a NOS speedometer? It's going to be a little big on the bars.

    Taerom! That sounds like what my buddy and I did with Lego Mindstorms. We made robots to battle each other.

    First robot to get disabled (knocked over, stop moving, get stuck in a corner etc) loses.

    My friend made a three-legged contraption that would turn until it located anything that reflected light. We did this in a flat-black painted refrigerator box. It would turn until it locked on to something, then it would use its front leg in a lifting kick motion. In practice, it would have worked pretty well.

    I used a low-profile rover style device, with a wedge made of old lego "roof" bricks on the front. But then I cheated. I used a different programming language than the standard LEGO software (I used NQC) which allows me to send data out of the infrared port. Mine would use the light emitter/sensor to find the reflective object, then it would stop, and barf the LEGO programming sequence out the IR port that erases the memory of the mindstorm's computer.

    So his robot lasted about 10 seconds before my robot rebooted his robot.
