40 mHz Tektronix 1540 Scope
What will a 25mHz storage scope do? Store a near-dc signal like the
discharge curve of a battery?
The rise time is almost identical to the average residency time
of a male in a washroom. Coincidence? I think not.

Both possible uses, but what about Solar Cell tracking - this
bandwidth would avoid shadow flutter from Clouds/Birds/Aeroplanes ?
Be good for measuring grass growth too..
I can remember using state of the art 10 Mhz scopes from
Tektronix. These required distributed delay line amplifiers for
the vertical deflection, and we did a lot of useful work with
them. No storage.
The thing that would put me off on the offering is that storage
tubes are expensive and fragile. I would be highly suspicious
that it is and will remain functional. Much more useful is an
adequate set of delayed sweeps and multiple traces. The place for
storage was for sampling scopes, which could capture much higher
speeds of repetitive signals.
It would be quite suitable for hardware with clocks in the under 2
to 5 Mhz areas.

Put it on the web then, or email it to me and I'll put it on the web. We
all deserve a laugh ^_^.
Wishing you good fortune,

Cute - LOL!
Where's the funny part?
There's no accounting for taste ^_^'. Have a close look at the photograph.

D'oh! I missed it the first time. :)
Somebody couldn't count.

Note the magnitude of the claimed error, and look for the source.
Geddit now!. Thanks. (hadn't scanned the 188mm)
I don't get it either. The fact that a cm scale starts from the
opposite end as the inch scale seems fairly normal. Errors in
proportion are not visible from the picture. The scale appears to
be about 8 inches long, which is not the norm. The bug report
verbiage, however, is amusing. I cannot correlate the "10 mm"
error (i.e. 1 cm) with any use or misuse of the instrument. If
that "error" was 188 - 25.4, or roughly 163, it would make sense.

Read again the part that says what measurement was made (OK, I'll tell
you: 188 mm). Read again the part that says how far off it was (OK,
I'll tell you again: 10mm). Now examine the scale in that region.
If you still don't get it, rot13 the text below:

More semantically correct, but not near as funny! But what can you
expect, when writing for engineers!
