    Oscilloscopes for Radio Amateurs []  2020-1-22 20:57

    I am considering adding an oscilloscope to my amateur radio station, for use in signal monitoring and measurement. I also do a fair amount of Arduino project building, and an oscilloscope would be handy to measure I2C signals, and PWM is book helped me quite a bit in understanding the measurement setups and methodology for the amateur radio station tests I am interested in ese tests include:- CW testing (waveform risetime)- SSB testing- PEP measurement- Transmit power overshoot- Transmit key to RF output timing, and Transmit un-key to RF output timing- Transmit Two-tone try with FFTThe book offers an perfect treatment of the capabilities and features that are available in all the different types of oscilloscopes that are available on the market. These contain the traditional og oscilloscopes, digital storage oscilloscopes (DSO), as well as the newer portable oscilloscopes (which plug into a PC or Tablet), and also software oscilloscopes (which use the soundcard of a PC to perform the A/D conversion).After reading this book, I had enough knowledge to select a nice 200 MHz DSO oscilloscope, for a reasonable price, which will more than serve my needs. It also helped me to select the RF detectors and RF samplers which I will need to measure high power RF signals in my amateur radio station. Overall, this is a amazing book, which I highly recommend.

    This has a bit of background about scopes in general but close to nothing about what you might do with them in the context of amateur radio.

    Ok provides much info but I was left with a felling of missed info about what I required to know when selecting an oscillator. Possibly what are you wanting to do and how the various features impact this.

    For me, title was misleading. Maybe "Picking a Scope" in the titleI was hoping for info on using them in the hobby.I already have my scopes, so it wasn't cash well spent by me

    Being an instrument person I enjoyed the book. My only problem was for me it was at times it was to basic. For others it will work fine with amazing explainations of the problems with oscilloscopes. A amazing read.

    Definitely for beginners, maybe. Unfortunately, the author does a disservice to the radio amateur by concentrating mainly on digital oscilloscopes which, realistically, unless you can afford a very, very amazing one with an extremely high sampling rate, are next to useless for working on and aligning RF circuits. The computer usb 'scopes he touts, while fun to play with, are not suited at all for the radio amateur. But,maybe I'm speaking of the radio amateur of the past, who actually repairs his own commercial gear of yesteryear and also builds his own transmitters and receivers. This book never actually shows you what you can DO with an oscilloscope in the hamshack. A better book for buying a 'scope and using it (and a bunch of other try equipment, too) is "How to Diagnose and Fix Everything Electronic" by Michael Geier. In other words, there are better resources out there (including the internet) than Oscilloscopes for Radio Amateurs. 73 de Rick WQ8Q

    Covers the history of oscilloscopes and provides an overview of how og and digital scopes work. This will support you decide what features to look for if you wish to buy a scope. However if you wish a book that will explain in detail how to use scopes in ham radio, this may not be for you.

    I am going to buy an oscilloscope to use in my Ham Radio Shack. I have used them in the past but the technology has changed dramatically over the years. It would be a mess to buy an oscilloscope only to search out that it misses the mark. This book has really filled the bill! I have read it from cover to cover and now feel like I know what to look for and how to use it when I obtain it. A lot of thanks.

    The book is a amazing review on how 'scopes work. Only about 25% of it relates to ham radio. I don't need the whole history and how the 1950's scopes work; I can obtain that elsewhere. Precious small content on ham-specific issues.

    If you are just starting out this book will support you understand. I am a bit sad not to search much actual use information. Oh well, that’s the poor part of ebooks, you can’t tell what you’re getting until after you’ve ease if you do ver 2.0 add true usage information.

    Digital Storage Oscilloscopes for Ham Radio []  2019-12-24 19:38

    I chop my electronic teeth on og 'scopes, both in the US NAVY and then in civilian electronics manufacturing, so I understand those guys beautiful well. I haven't finished reading Digital Storage Oscilloscopes for Ham Radio yet, but I've read enough to believe I can write a review. This book can be enjoyed two ways: sitting in front of your digital 'scope with the book begin on my Kindle Fire and trying various things, or, sitting in a recliner with an adult beverage just learning and enjoying the author's easygoing (but informative) writing style. Some of the latest ARRL publications have been lacking in true (HAM) globe applications (and suffer from stiff, formal writing) for us old time amateur radio operators, but this book really fills the bill for dragging us old codgers into the 21st century. I will probably never give up my og scope because I am used to its ways. But I recently added a digital oscilloscope and now, because of this book, I am starting to understand d Job, Eric.73 de Rick WQ8Q

    I am unfamiliar with oscilloscopes and found this book to be an perfect introductory tutorial. HOWEVER, the book leaves out a lot of figures referenced in the text. It appears the production ver of this book was never proofed. This is a dissapointing blemish on an otherwise fine text.

    I really enjoyed this book. I already own a DSO, but Eric clued me in on so a lot of things I never knew I could do with my DSO.I would have given this book five stars, but for several production issues. The promised appendix containing the IEEE-488 standard was missing, all figures in chapter 11 are missing, a lot of references to figures in chapter 17 are incorrect in the text, the two tone generator schematic is missing and a bunch of typos.

    I am a professional electronics engineer, for years I've waffled on using oscilloscopes .. but determined to learn more and be more proficient with them. I have learned a lot using this book, and recommend it for anyone seriously looking to develop better skills. It will benefit hams and any one else needing amazing scope skills. My decision to invest in a modern DSO was based on this book ...

    Amazing book. The only thing that keeps me from giving it five stars is that it is only available as an eBook. It's tough to use it as a reference in that format.

    I found this to be a amazing introduction to digital oscilloscopes. It covers the importance of different parameters and the trade offs vs cost that one would wish to consider in making a purchase. The author has a writing style that I search simple to read and fun. There are also ideas for different applications that amateur radio operators may search interesting to pursue.

    Does a really nice job of explaining DSOs. Because the field is changing so fast, it is already a bit dated. Just means you have to read it to understand the huge list of choices available.

    Oscilloscopes: How to Use Them, How They Work []  2020-4-14 18:10

    I'm a first time user of oscilloscopes, and this book starts in well in advance of my beginners ability. I'm sure it's amazing for folks who have a fairly amazing background with oscilloscopes already, but I need to back up a ways for my learning skills. I think it'll support me out more in the future after I obtain some amazing hands on experience. An oscilloscope isn't something you just plug in and begin poking around on electrical circuits with. You need patience and previous knowledge of the workings of components and circuitry to create it useful.

    Oscilloscopes: How to Use Them, How They Work []  2020-4-14 18:10

    This book includes a lot of amazing info on oscilloscopes that you really can't obtain in any other stand alone book. The issue is that the first edition of this book was in the early 1980's, and now the fifth edition was released in 2001. Oscilloscopes have changed a lot in those 20 years, this book has tried to hold pace, but the patchwork of add-ons and other enhancements really shows.What's really required is a complete re-write or at least a complete re-organization of this book. A lot of the key subjects of oscilloscopes are covered by referencing old obsolete oscilloscopes. This of course is foolish and is the effect of quickly patching the book over years by adding fresh chapters for fresh technology, but not fixing the existing chapters to reference current technology.Anyways, there is still a lot of amazing info here. It's just not presented in the ideal way.

    Very disappointing. Poorly written, as if translated from another language, mixed selling by the different "sources" and small of value here. Don't bother.
