Looking for a Used Oscilloscope

proeasdf

I am looking for a used oscilloscope.  I have not used one since Mr. Matt's electronics class at CHS.  What I want to know is how to test the oscilloscope to make sure it works and is appropriate for my intended projects.  I intend to use the oscilloscope for automotive hall effect wave form analysis, reluctance wave form analysis and ignition wave form.


 Any assistance in what to look-for/test would be greatly appreciated.

can you use a phone app? I guess it depends on whether the phone will accept your input signal.

wow, I remember Mr Matt, he was a good guy, I learned a lot in his class. What I learned there helped me through my stint in the Army as well as providing a basis for my life time profession. Too bad they did away with classes like that.

Sadly, I had several oscilloscopes here, but recycled them a few years ago.

Good luck in your search, an O-scope might be hard to find these days.

I think I am going to go with a Hantek HT6022BE (PC Based USB Digital Storage Oscilloscope, 20 MHz Bandwidth) for about $66.  See https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Useful-Hantek-6022BE-PC-Based-USB-Digital-Storag-Oscilloscope-2-Channels-MA/254040432455?hash=item3b25fd5f47:g:iK8AAOSw9~RcI3A9


Same item is sold on Amazon but takes longer for delivery so I think I will go with the US based seller.   Based on Amazon reviews, I understand that the drivers have to be manually installed (as the drivers do NOT come as executable files).

 Yea, good to hear somebody else remembers the days of old and Mr. Matt.
